Artist: Pawns or Kings
Reviewed by Joseph Timmons: Xombiewoof Magazine
Missouri based and US born indie folk band Pawns or Kings, described by the Indie Shuffle as "The Fleet Foxes and the Avett Brothers have a music baby", have recently released their newest album, Pomme de Terre.
Pomme de Terre has it has been gaining some impressive momentum in the UK underground scene but has remained relatively unknown in the states, which is a shame because this group has a great sound to offer. I find their sound to be a hybrid of Dave Mathews and a bit of the Hollies, maybe even a bit of Country Joe McDonald … just something about the way they sound reminds me of Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seger, true sounds of the people’s music.
Peaceful, Serene and Reassuring in their lyrical majesty, Pawns or Kings gives a front porch softness to a world gone mad and I will be following them steadfast and sure.
Of all the songs on this emotionally driving and surely spiritual invigorating album is the track The River Will Rise, go to http://pawnsorkings.bandcamp.com and hear it, as well as their other songs for yourself, you can also find them on Facebook Here- http://www.facebook.com/PawnsorKings.
