ADMIRAL FALLOW

Tree Bursts in Snow

2012-08-26

Scottish band Admiral Fallow joins Mumford and Sons as a turbo-charged, emotion-drenched indie folk band--building many of these songs into power anthems. The opener throws you off a bit since it is the only cut that trades off female and male lead vocalists; the remainder of the record travels closer to Mumford territory (although Sarah Hayes does return to give some color to the vocal harmonies throughout). "The Paper Trench," "Guest of the Government" and "Beetle in the Box" cranks up three speaker-filling songs in a row before the volume gets ratcheted down a bit. "Brother" and "The Way You Were Raised" are other (less revved up) stand-outs. Solid sophomore release. Michael J. 08/12 F-Turbo
