Plume Giant

A callithump, according to Google, is a riotous parade. It is also the debut full-length from a band called Plume Giant, a trio of Yale educated, classically trained musicians evidently fascinated with the old-time-y, porch-friendly country/blues/folk tradition. Their Callithump is, indeed, a parade of rambunctious, off-kilter exploits in traditionally rooted styles, though sweetened by some really lovely harmonies, counterpoints and other vocal flourishes. You can stream the whole album at Soundcloud...check it out.

They've got some entertaining covers up at Youtube...
