Balmorhea Sail on ‘Bowspirit’ (MP3)

Since 2007, existential folksters Balmorhea have released three critically praised albums and an EP, so they’ve been around the block a few (or four) times. Their signature combination of classical elements and American folk strips the listener naked and bathes him in atmosphere, exposing him to the emotional elements of life. Their music is both patient and sprawling, meditative and mysterious, and it speaks to the world we live in (and beyond).

They’re currently preparing to release Constellations through Western Vinyl, due out February 23. In addition, the band will soon embark on a North American tour, which culminates at SWSW in March.

We’re lucky enough to have for your ears the first single from Constellations, entitled “Bowspirit” (MP3).
