Mario Chavez It is beautiful and calming. Perfect to listen to while reading and just lose yourself in. Favorite track: Part 5 - Serenade the Constellations.

Jonathan Surek Beautiful Dark Folk. I whish there would be thousands of bands like this. But on the other hand I'm loving the uniqueness of this. Of course it is classically inspired and can be compared to albums like Kveldssanger and Where at night the wood grouse plays or projects like Vàli or October Falls. But to me this is thoroughly unique and magical! Favorite track: Part 1 - Earthrise.

about

Musk Ox's second full-length album. A one-hour, five part progressive chamber folk epic for classical guitar, cello and violin

Woodfall LP available courtesy of Neuropa Records:

neuroparecords.com/application/shop/product.php?shop=neuropa-records&product=848371

“Now an instrumental trio that includes violin and cello, Musk Ox expertly combines the subtlety of Arvo Pärt with the tension and drive of Clint Mansell. “Woodfall” is a grand and panoramic sophomore effort that offers the warmth and maturity only hinted at on the debut.”

- Don Anderson (Agalloch, Sculptured)

"Musk Ox's most ambitious offering to date; rich in harmony, expression, and most notably, the nuanced finesse of Nathanael Larochette’s classical guitar stylings. Much like the nature that I imagine has inspired it, “Woodfall” evokes a sense of calm, stillness, and simplicity, while at once flowing forward and in constant motion".

- Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrythmia, Gorguts, Vaura)

"Whatever it may lack in heavy metal thunder or ravishing grimness, Musk Ox more than makes up for with its richness in atmosphere and emotion, created in tune with the natural world and its terrifying beauty."

- Pitchfork

"Their new full length album Woodfall shows them as seriously talented musicians who have made a beautifully sculpted instrumental classical folk album...nothing short of epic."

- Echoes and Dust
