Blasting Through

It’s been a while since we heard from Lewis & Clarke, but the band’s debut, Bare Bones and Branches, remains one of the best folk records in recent memory. Judging by “Before It Breaks You,” our first hint at the band’s upcoming Blasts Of Holy Birth, the new one is going to be even better. “Before It Breaks You” is the kind of intricate, gorgeous folk that Iron & Wine aimed for on Woman King — and at well over nine minutes, it’s even more ambitious. “Majesty Snowbird?” Psssh.

No MP3s yet, but you can hear a high-quality stream on L&C’s label site. Just click “launch player.”
