The Acorn “Restoration” from the album “No Ghost” from Paper Bag Records on Vimeo.
In a year in which Local Natives have ascended almost all the way to indie godhood, Ottawa act The Acorn — who were first, and better — deserve a little more attention. (Which is not to say Local Natives aren’t the best new live act of 2010 and totally great in general.) The stop-motion video for “Restoration” reminds me of Legends of the Hidden Temple; the song reminds me of how folk music should sound at its most fiery.
