Chimney Choir

On Chimney Choir's debut EP — titled (feather) and graced with a block-print feather graphic on the cover — the trio offered five songs that were all keepers. At the same time, those tunes left the listener wanting more. It didn't take long for the act to deliver, following that release with this equally ambitious five-song EP, dubbed (turtle). While both EPs could have easily been combined as one long-player, they each stand up well on their own. As it was on (feather), the music on (turtle) is steeped in Americana and world folk influences, but while the earlier effort leaned toward the folkier side of that equation, the sound is a bit more ambient and reflective this time around.
