The Franciscan Hobbies
Masks & Meanings
CD / MP3
« SAB 001 · SAB 003 »

A further extrapolation of mysterious noise, minimalist acoustic picking & strumming, percussive clatter and occasional abstract vocal utterances from The Franciscan Hobbies. This loosely-bound satellite of the Jewelled Antler Collective weave a dense carpet of moss, sticks and grass on the forest floor with harps, banjos, cumbus oud, bowed-things, organ, bouzouki, broken guitars, gongs, bells and drums. Masks & Meanings is their second missive; features members of Thuja, The Blithe Sons, The Buried Civilizations, Ov, The Skygreen Leopards, etc.
