Keston Cobblers Club

english folk // pop

Keston Cobblers Club delivers a joyous blend of traditional-feeling folk melodies, toe-tapping rhythms and a slightly quirky vibe. While comparisons to the early Noah and the Whale, Mumford & Sons and Beirut are inevitable, the British quintet’s take on English folk revival is unique and refreshing. The album opener, “The Children Who Wear Socks On Their Heads”, A Scene of Plenty (2013), leads with frenetic accordion and percussion is a high-energy foot-stomping musical extravaganza. “You-Go”, taken from the band’s debut album One, For Words (2012), is a delightful pop-folk gem. Don’t miss the band’s take on Vampire Weekend’s “Ya Hey!” with some vintage animation.

Infectiously joyful.

    Great find! Thank you!

  2. Kevin Cardinale :

    Yup, sounds like Beirut and Mumford and sons. It’s good, just don’t know how to feel about it, still sounds good I guess, thanks for the find!

  3. Kevin Cardinale :

    Was gunna say, you guys still around, one update in 6 months? One comment on the latest story? I hope things are alright, I’ve been coming to this blog for… has it been six years? I haven’t liked everything you guys have brought, but you’ve always been a good fallback site. Believe me, that’s a compliment. I always am pretty happy to find something unique reaching my ears pretty damn consistently. All the best, KC
