This collaboration between Cretan lute maestro George Xylouris and drum hero Jim White is as fresh and new as it is in touch with ancient musical history. Just lute, drums and a bit of singing and yet it sounds huge and pretty heavy.
This track, Forging, is the first single off their second album which is due on October 7th. Their first album, Goats, became a bit of an indie hit and got them in with the Pitchfork crowd. But really, it’s not about that. It’s about that lute. And those drums.
