Yellow & Green is the first Baroness LP to feature artwork by artists other than frontman John Baizley, it includes pieces by none other than Paul Romano and Aaron Horkey. Released to mixed reviews, July 2012 on Relapse Records.
I have just listened to Gillian Welch’s, The Harrow and the Harvest for the first time. The couple describe their music as American Primitive – a classic genrelisation. The album is very folk rock, with a ‘Waify’ feel to it, although whilst there is a dynamic to the album, it seems to me synonymous with the word ‘down’. Veterans of the genre and well respected as musicians, Dave and Gill have built a cult following since their first album release in 1996 and later, music for the Coen Brother’s triumph in O Brother, Where Art Thou?
