As the follow up to Glory Hope Mountian, a concept album focusing on the life of frontman Rolf Klausener’s mother, The Acorn‘s No Ghost equally echoes the intimate boom of folk and frenzy of romantic classic Southern rock roots. In this case, though, it’s the far North that has inspired this mix of acoustic and electric sounds that are able to hold up to a wide array of celebration– candlelit dinners, frolicking through the backwoods of the Québécois cottage the album was recorded in, or speeding below ground in large tin cans marked by numbers and letters.
With three upcoming shows in the NYC area, it would be ill-advised to miss these boys. Heck, I say make the trip to Hoboken if you have to. But since we have a soft spot for Takka Takka, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to The Acorn’s final night in town before they head back to dear ‘ole Canada.
For your chance to win tickets to see The Acorn with Takka Takka and Ola Podrida at Littlefield on Thurs. July 15th, just comment below… and please make sure you use your real email address, since that’s how we’ll be notifying you of your win. Also, we’re giving away a pair of tix to check out Beirut that very same night, so why not try your luck at both!?
No Ghost is currently available via digital release on Bella Union.
