Review: Musk Ox - Woodfall (2014)

Nath­anaël Larochette’s Musk Ox is now a trio, and with the new album Wood­fall, the music has evolved to fully fledged cham­ber folk. Larochette’s clas­sical gui­tar works in uni­son with the violin and cello parts added by Evan Runge & Raphael Wein­roth-Browne, the lat­ter of whom also co-com­posed the album. The res­ult is a suite tak­ing parts from both clas­sical music and the acous­tic romantic neo­folk from the mid-nineties and later.
