Spires That In The Sunset Rise

I had read intriguing things about them, but darling_effect's Terrastock post, with handy links, put me in touch with their music ... which is very strange: rooted in European folk songs, but also utterly alien; played on acoustic instruments, but noisy as all get-out; pretty, but also pretty scary.

I know there is a burgeoning scene of psych/folk music, which I am mostly ignorant of; but from my vantage point I hear some resemblances to Gang Gang Dance, early Danielle Dax, Under Byen, and of course the first couple Sonic Youth albums.

Here are four songs to listen to.
