Blackbird RAUM’s second album that’s faster, darker and tighter than the first. Again utilizing the clawhammer banjo, accordion, singing saw and more. the scratchy five part harmonies make good on the bleak promise of their first album, more explicit of an incredibly dim view of world affairs. Subjects ranging from war to ecological collapse and all the bright space in between. RAUM has grown up into something extremely paranoid and in haste. sounds like Leonard Cohen and Nausea team up to start a bluegrass troupe or perhaps the Minutemen go french musette.
