Boduf Songs - Lion Devours the Sun

Dark Indie Folk from Southampton, U.K. Pretty sweet, like if you combined the darkest aspects of Elliott Smith, Songs: Ohia, and Bonnie Prince Billy and told them to record a folk rendition of the Downward Spiral. (I’ll spare the Nick Drake comparison, he’s probably sick of it by now.) Bleak, melancholy folksy vocals with some ambient industrial sounds like bugs swarming on your decaying body. Picks: 1, 4, 9.

*1. Quiet vocals with acoustic guitar, singing about flies and plague and disease, with some sound-effectsy industrial sounds. [5:27]

2. Atmospheric beginning, with some cello-y sounds accompany guitar with the emotionally distant vocals. [4:02]

3. Guitar is almost singer-songwritery, with some very background electric guitar sounds in some quiet parts. I can’t get over having folk vocals croon on about heads on spikes. Some tape-recorder sample-sounding parts and rustling experimental crunches at end. [6:31]

*4. Vocals show the faintest hints of an edge, with the tiniest bit of Elliott Smith vox. [2:45]

5. Slow and quiet/atmospheric, with some tribally drums in the background. [6:51]

6. Folk rock (for this guy) guitars, some reversed autoharp samples. [3:43] *** FCC ***

7. A lot of Neubauten-esque playing around with the drums and cymbals with some tiny computer sounds and barely audible vocals. Fake ending at -0:47 [5:02]

8. Multiple layerd vocal “harmonies.” Last 30 seconds very quiet. [3:45]

***9. Sparse instrumentation leading into a fuller emotive guitar with whispered, reflective vocals that make me sad in a good way. [3:45]
