To Joey Batey and Madeleine Hyland,
Thank you for single handedly convincing tumblr to listen to contemporary folk music. It has been such a delight to watch everyone collectively loosing their minds over your gorgeous new album. And rightly so, it’s a brilliant work.
My whole life I have been obsessed with folk music (it’s my genre) and I can honestly say that your album absolutely floored me. It is one of the most lyrically intricate and brazenly beautiful albums I have ever heard. Congratulations, both of you!!
Here’s to celebrating that ancient, wild, versatile, brilliant, bawdy and beautiful genre!
To everyone loving folk for the first time,
Don’t stop there! If you love the hauntingly beautiful music and wildly clever lyrics of The Amazing Devil you should also go out and discover some of the other incredible yet underappreciated artists and bands in the folk world. And go to a folk festival or a concert, because folk needs to heard live.
I promise you won’t be disappointed!!
