THE ACORN - Glory Hope Mountain

acorn-glory%20hope.jpgThis record marks The Acorn's transition from promising new talent to leading light. Many elements were always there: elegant folk melodies, superb musicianship, and a sense of experimentation. The only thing missing is what Glory Hope Mountain has in spades: an engaging, human story. This half-truth, half-fiction yarn about songwriter Rolf Klausener's mother's journey from Honduras to Montreal is, like any great album, both foreign and familiar. Telling the tale are twelve gorgeous songs played with spirit, understanding and an ear for the rhythms of Garifuna music that never misappropriates the sounds.

Great album.

They're on the cover of this month's Exclaim too. I have yet to listen to this album, but I'm curious now.
