The Active Listener - The First Acid Folk Sampler

Here's a compilation that goes really well with the present season. The middle of autumn, leaves falling, beautiful colors, mushrooms popping up everywhere. Time to get the cows in the barn and to listen to a bit of acid-folk.

Acid-folk ? Well it's a blend of musical influences between folk and psychedelic rock. As always, the frontier between those musical styles is very blurry, and we like it that way don't we ? Everything does not hinges on the chords and rhythms used.

A great deal of what defines a music genre also rests on the attitude of the band (during live performances for example), on the lyrics, the influences, the references and the choice of the instruments used (the mellotron is typical of progressive and psychedelic rock, for instance).

What The Active Listener gives to us once more here is a compilation of a great number of quality, whimsical dreamy tracks, in a very specific style.

May they live long and prosper.
