The Habit....crazed Americana from Brooklyn

I'm too late to actually write about this, and, to be honest, it's a little trad for my tastes, but if you like your folk music unhinged and wild-eyed and altogether unconcerned with decorum, why not give Brooklyn's The Habit a spin?

The band has not one but four songwriters, which, perhaps, explains the diversity of musical styles on Lincoln Is Dead, from murmur-y guitar-strumming ballads, to to shuffling skiffles, to full-on, raging barn-stoms like "War Is Done" which just happens to be the single.

They must really like this song, because it's the only one with a video, too.

So that's two Civil War themed blog posts in one week. Let's see if we can't move on to WWI for tomorrow.
