Self-described as Apocalyptic Americana music, Asheville, NC folk band, The Toothe, released a strange but great 25-minute EP, Talons, on June 10.  Great because this EP is made up of six really interesting folk songs, ranging from folky sing-alongs to slow ballads. Strange because lyrically, there’s stuff like “now you’re passing through me like a kidney stone” in the song “Husk”.  I guess I’d describe these guys a bit like The Avett Brothers, with Ween lyrics. Talons is definitely a really fun listen because of that. It’s a psychedelic look at Americana, it’s so refreshing in a time with so many artists that seem to have fallen into a “genericana” pitfall and have some fun with the genre.
