The Deep Dark Woods' newest album Yarrow was borne in a fever – scarlet fever, to be medically specific. A disease of the last century is a fitting backdrop for songs that dig bare handed into the loam to unearth the corpses of old English folk and country blues. Yarrow is the result of Ryan Boldt's re-imagining of The Deep Dark Woods, the band that crafted prairie psychedelics and a "loose grungy folk sound" (Paste) for flannelites. For nearly ten years they developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards

Now wrest out of the woods, their outlook is decidedly more macabre, tapping into a rich vein of gothic surrealism that aligns with some of the great murder balladeers of our time. With Appalachian soil under his fingernails, Boldt writes in a deep tradition of bleak and forlorn storytelling, drawing lines from Ireland to Tennessee, the Oxford Girl to Folsom Prison. In Yarrow, there's a juicy unease to Boldt's presence, as if a new door has opened to let loose the weirdness. In place of the freewheelin' jammy vibe there's a darker, stranger tenor that sides with those modern mystics whose music exists in the creepier, freakier corners of existence.
