Ambient Folklore – Bestiary

The Bulgarian band Ambient Folklore have a new album out, and it surpasses any neofolk/dark-folk album I’ve heard over the past two years.  The sounds on this record are heavy and foreboding, made more so by very prominent hurdy-gurdy expertly played by Petar Delchev.  It sounds as if mid-period Death In June discovered Balkan music and incorporated local instruments into their sound, but with better recording production.  A gorgeous album.
