Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
Groove, Myself Beloved’s opening track, is instantly familiar and welcoming. It’s like making a new friend who you feel like you’ve known your entire life. That’s generally how I feel about Hiddenfolk’s new ep. The fours songs at various points remind me of Pedro the Lion, And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Minus the Bear, and The Dismemberment Plan. You could throw Hiddenfolk into the emo revival category or call them math rock or indie rock. It’s all kind of similar anyway. What I know is it took me about 5 seconds to realize that this was an album worth having and a band worth sharing! You can find Myself Beloved at https://hiddenfolk.bandcamp.com/album/myself-beloved and pay what you want for the record. You can also pick up a cassette version of the record at https://sorrydadrecords.bandcamp.com/album/myself-beloved if you’re into that sort of thing.
