Johnny Flynn - A Larum (2008)

This is, without a doubt, my favorite folk album, and one of the most well-loved pieces of music in my life.

Johnny Flynn is the British singer/songwriter responsible for this masterpiece. His playful lyrics are joined with incredible instrumentation--traditional americana instruments being used in unorthodox ways. Lots of cello harmonics, trumpets, mandolins, drums...

Anyways, as the days get colder, you're going to need some warm music. This is a great choice.

    Ha! I know this album. My girlfriend pointed out to me how Hong Kong Cemetery seems to pretty much lift straight from the final track of this album:

    It's pretty fucking close.
