Boylion (Robert Finck) is a champ. I mean, come on. He plays a classical guitar, which sounds amazing only because it’s falling apart. He’s got connections with upright bass players all over the state. He’s a connoisseur of jorts. On top of all that, he’s one of the most dynamic performers to set foot in the Caldwell Lounge. Alongside bassist Nate Goldsmith, Finck’s expressions progress from whispers to a roar.
From the arhythmic declarations of “I Can Only Build Coffins” to the new, unreleased track “October,” this session is dense with personality and emotion. Do yourself a favor by listening to “Leafless Weeks” below and importing each of the songs into your iTunes library (free mp3′s at the bottom, duh)!
Local folk duo Boylion will be on WKNC tomorrow afternoon at 4:30 pm for an interview and performance of a few songs off their upcoming, debut full-length. They’re one of the Triangle’s most promising young bands, so be sure to tune in!
The duo will be playing alongside another, albeit better-known, folk duo by the name of Paleface this Sunday, September 27, at the Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex. The show is all ages with doors at 6:30 p.m. and Boylion starting the show off at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available at the door or online here.
