This album was the spotlight two months ago so from there you know I like it. The Pig Merchants are a folk duo form Lancaster that have a band they sport, or they play as the duo. This album, while the sound quality of the album is lacking, and sometimes it feels like it could fall apart percussion wise, I love it. The little nuances make this disc for me, feels more organic. My favorite track on this disc is “Storyteller/ On We Go.” To me, it has a Irish, folk punk feel to it, transitioning to a straight folk n’ fiddle tune. This is a fun listen, and they are a wonderful and energetic band live.
If you dig Andrew Jackson Jihad, The Decemberists, or The Lumineers check these guys out.
