Why folk music is excellent (note, free music inside!)

Folk  music sort of creeps up on you insidiously in Birkenstocks and Blundstones. One second you’re listening to the Arkells and bopping around at a concert, being elbowed in the face by some jerk in a beanie and plaid shirt, and the next second you’ve stumbled upon Dan Griffin’s (keyboard and guitar player for the Arkells) website. Well, he’s just enchanting. It’s melodic folk and extremely pared down and beautiful. Bonus: it’s a free download, and you’re not going to get punched in the face by an arrogant U of T student.

I encourage you all to download it, and be enthralled. You’re welcome.
