Folk Rock / Indie / Pop

The band, fronted by Polish singer/songwriter Olenka Krakus, has a sound that mingles a strong Eastern European influence with elements of North American country and folk music. The band's diverse instruments (cello, violin, accordion, trumpet, saxophone, lap steel, mandolin and glockenspiel) provide a unique musical backdrop to Olenka's sophisticated, often narrative, form of songwriting. Influenced by her memories of Communist Poland and by the country's folklore, Olenka investigates themes of social injustice and personal responsibility, populating her songs with melancholy outcasts from both Polish and Canadian landscapes. O&AL’s music has been compared to that of Beirut, The Decemberists, Wilco, Arcade Fire, Cat Power, Gillian Welch, Gogol Bordello, Lhasa, and Tom Waits.

Showtunes

Ce sextuor instrumental donne dans la musique klezmer et slave, ce qui assure une ambiance cuivrée pour faire le party. Leurs chansons aux titres cocasses réfèrent toutes au mystérieux Steve Day. T’aimerais ça être monsieur Day, hein? -- eb

Folly and the Hunter

Folly and the Hunter is an Indie Folk Band from Montreal Canada. They give a unique contribution to the Indie genre, blending the American folk tradition with ambient post-rock influences. F & H write tranquil yet sorrowful songs akin to that of Bon Iver, The National and Iron & Wine, while adding energy to the compositions with build ups and cascades of sound similar to that of Sigur Ros, Sufjan Stevens and Arcade Fire. Folly and the Hunter are releasing their debut album, titled ‘Residents’, in the beginning of 2011.
