As you may already know I have an obsession with folk music that has a larger than life sound. Those oohs & ahs, pounding drums, and shoegaze guitars always get me! Today, I would like to introduce you Brooklyn-based band, Yellerkin. These are one of the few indie folk bands that will make you want to dance!

First up there’s Tools, a song that will make you want to frolic in the forest in act of defiance for all societal norms.

And next up, is a song that is one part Arcade Fire a la Where The Wild Things Are and another part Grizzly Bear. Solar Laws is everything I would ever want from a ethereal folk pop song.

If you know of any other great indie folk artists, let me know your favorites in the comments!
