Folk Discovery M7

Here's the 7th matchup of the first round. This branch of our tournament totally has me stumped. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it will blossom into one of our greatest. (I swear to you guys, this match come out of the randomizer.) Anyway, voting for this matchup ends the end of the day on Thursday, May 28.

Christ Tree


An early "freak folk" album mixing Christian liturgical music, psychedelia, and world music. This is probably the only album I could describe as simultaneously experimental harmonically (microtones in the Asian influences) and instrumentally (sitars, harps, weird percussion), yet quaintly old-fashion and homey (mainly their singing tone). The group's website states their influences "ranged from the Incredible String Band and Moody Blues to Indian Raga and Balinese Monkey Chant, from traditional American sacred folk music to Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Charles Ives, Bela Bartak and Claude Debussy."
