Don't let him fool you: Alex Brown Church is Sea Wolf. Sure, he hasn't been through as many lineup changes as the Avs, but Church just likes to keep his options open. That's the sort of thing you're allowed to do as a musician if you have the songwriting ability that he does. Although Sea Wolf could easily be pigeonholed as the love child of Doug Martsch and Willy Mason, that would hardly do any justice to the band's sound, which admittedly borrows from those sources and creates something amalgamated yet original. Folk music, meet old-fashioned indie rock — oh, and please welcome our old friend Mr. Accordion, who's accompanied by strings. This is music to feel feelings to.
