If you're the kind of bro or bro-ette who likes to run a hand through your unwashed mane while downing a hot cup of Earl Grey, today is your day. Meet the folkers! Devendra Banhart keeps coming with that acoustic purp on Cripple Crow, Coco Rosie do the Edith Piaf via Garden State thing on their second full length Noah's Ark. And if that's not enough hushed tones for you, beardo prodigy Sam Beam (aka Iron & Wine) teams up with Calexico for some desert air on In The Reins.
Those not feeling the shhh-core offerings, do not fear. Little Brother school you in the way of boom-bap on The Minstrel Show while label mate Paul Wall does the same for candy paint, swangas, and blackplanet.com on The People's Champ. Sigur Ros throws down some more sounds-like-whales-humping jams on Takk, and The Super Furry Animals stay psyche-ed on Love Kraft. Happy trails, consumers!
