The Maypole Dance: Stuart & Caan
Who? Stuart And Caan
What? Lo-fi weirdo folk
Sounds like? Devendra Banhart’s album with the long title ‘Oh Me Oh My’, Daniel Johnston, Woods
I discovered Stuart And Caan when i read about them touring with Devendra Banhart. I’m not sure whether this information is correct and franktly don’t really care. Their lo-fi campfire songs are just too good not to listen to. I’ve got a thing for this kind of lo-fi stuff, I must admit. The first album of Devendra Banhart is one of my all-time favourites, and two years ago Woods released my favourite album of 2007 with ‘At Rear House’ (can’t wait for the new one)
Stuart and Caan is a bit mellower at times, but still…it’s got the edge that i always tend to look for. Their album got released on Knw Yr Own records. Great stuff, get over there. This is gonna end up really high on my end of year list for 2009, that’s for sure!
