Saintseneca is an acoustic band from Ohio. You may recognize them from the 2011 Topshelf Records sampler. This album is bursting at the seams with grassroots folk that is somehow both raw and lush. The vocals are heavily indebted to Neutral Milk Hotel, but far from a cheap rip-off. The only percussion on the album is provided by stomps and clamps, which complements the music perfectly. This paragraph won’t do this album justice, and writing this group off as just another folk band would be a great mistake. Try something different, check it out.
