New The Silt- "No Twig" mp3


Great to be back after a nice layover, and it's even better to be sharing with you a brand new mp3 from Toronto's The Silt. (I still need to correct myself each time after thinking their name is The Slit. And I may or may not have seen a porn with that title before.) Anywho, we've got an exclusive taste of the folk trio's upcoming LP Cat's Peak, which will be released a week from now via Fire Records. "No Twig" is a slice of slow-moving country that sounds like it's about to collapse any second, channeling the dilapidated structure of many Bonnie "Prince" Billy songs. Come to think of it, frontman Ryan Driver has a bit of a Will Oldham thing going on in his voice, which is never a bad thing. You can currently stream two other songs from Cat's Peak on the band's Myspace, including the funky "Come Back To The Willow." Silt. Not Slit. Silt, silt, silt....
