Indie Folk

Musically, it consists of mainly acoustic instruments, mostly guitar and occasionally violin or flute, accompanied by percussion instruments such as bongos. The guitar often uses alternate tunings and drone harmonics create the “freak” of the folk.. A collection of found items and electronic samples and loops add to the sonic sounds cape of the freak folk. Vocals tend toward the willfully eccentric, arrangements toward the exotic, lyrics toward the oblique. The sound can range from gentle ensemble music befitting a Renaissance fair to electric psychedelic befitting an acid test.
