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.

    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!

    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
