Hips Picks: The Acorn

Posted by dancehallhips on April 6, 2008

Lately, I’ve been binging on classic rock and folk, and really keeping my nose out of the indie scene, but I was given a CD a few days I couldn’t ignore: The Acorn’s Glory Hope Mountain. It’s very ecclectic for lack of more detail. It’s a little Broken Social Scene-y but with a lot more tribal and folk influences. Kind of like a more meticulous, more calculated Akron/Family. With some basic Springsteen/Diamond elements of folk writing thrown in.
