On tour opening for The Decemberists! Kacy & Clayton’s new album was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and recorded at the band’s Chicago studio (The Loft), by Tom Schick, The Siren’s Song follows Kacy & Clayton’s 2016 record Strange Country. It’s the first album on which Anderson and duo partner Clayton Linthicum — second cousins who grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada — have incorporated electric full-band arrangements; they’re joined for the project by drummer / percussionist Mike Silverman and bassist Shuyler Jansen.
The Deep Dark Woods’ newest album was borne in a fever – scarlet fever, to be medically specific. A disease of the last century is a fitting backdrop for songs that dig bare handed into the loam to unearth the corpses of old English folk and country blues. In Yarrow, the Deep Dark Woods are reimagined by leadman Ryan Boldt, and accompanied by the same band that crafted prairie psychedelics and a “loose grungy folk sound” (Paste) for flannelites. For nearly ten years they developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards.
