The Franciscan Hobbies

Masks & Meanings

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.
