About this item
Former Neutral Milk Hotel mainstay Jeremy Barnes returns with the second A Hawk And A Hacksaw album, a huge progression from 2004's self-titled debut. "Darkness At Noon" is a heady brew of accordian, piano and drum passages that spans Eastern European folk traditions, Klezmer, Mariachi, American folk and modern composition. Fans of the primitive-cum-American-heritage style folk of Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart, Animal Collective etc, will find much to enjoy as will fans of anything from Calexico to Asa-Chang & Junray to Tom Waits.
