Nice music, different from what you're used to hear. the snoring piece at the end is a little weird though...

On any given Friday night here in Portland, every other club and coffee shop has an Americana band playing, most of it good.

Black Prairie stands out of the crowd for several reasons but my favorite is Annalisa Tornfelt's vocals. She hits this ethereal, melancholic, angelic tone that I can't get enough of.

This album showcases her voice more than the first one.

But Black Prairie is more than her voice -- the band does lots of great instrumentals. The Decemberists, one of Portland's great bands, makes up the heart of Black Prairie, giving them a strong performing confidence. It's kind of like, "Screw this! We'll play what we want. We've got a hit band if the public doesn't like this one." So they play what they want, and we are all the better for it.

Bottom line: if you like the Americana genre, you will probably like this album. If you like Tornfelt's voice, you'll love it.

Black prairie is full of talent.....love their first album with a capital L. But this album's also great music was overshadowed by 2 particular tracks. One which has about 5 minutes of presumably intentional silence at the end (lame) and another that has closer to 15 minutes of silence which grows to an odd and loud snoring, or mooing, or whale grumble noise (really lame). I get that their artsists and their music is unparalleled but forget the gimicks and stick with what you're amazing at. I could have better spent my 10 bucks downloading he album as seperate songs effectively avoiding the 2 pieces of offending junk.

If you are a fan of The Decemberists, I think you will be pleasantly surprised by this sibe project by some of the lesser know members of the band. What I enjoyed most was the emphasis on the calming music, especially the string instruments used. This is a great addition to any playlist you may have for listening to wind down after a stressful day.

Great harmonies, great musicians, great music all together.
I originally found Black Prairie on Youtube for "How do you ruin me". I could not get the song out of my head so I bought the entire album hoping I wouldn't be disappointed. I was relieved. The whole thing is really good. I highly recommend it.

This is a wonderful album so far. Lead singer reminds me of the lead singer for HEM, which isn't a bad thing in my opinion. Definitely one of the best purchases I've made in awhile. It's not really bluegrass or folk, but a mix of both, with some zydeco here and there. It's a blend of genres I love, but can only listen to for awhile. Their own take makes it interesting throughout the entire album.

This music is definitely for fans of the Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, and the like. The lead female singer's voice is soulful and soothing. The music is splendid and varied, I definitely wasn't bored listening from track to track.

I can't stop repeating 'Nowhere, Massachusetts.'

The album was well worth the buy! I would recommend without hesitation.

I like a lot of there tunes. But I am done buying CDs when only a couple are worth listening to and the rest feels like cheap fillers.

Thanks to NPR, I discovered this band, which is a side project of some members of The Decemberists. The music spans a wide variety of genres and instrumentation, but the overall product is rather satisfying. Some songs captured my attention immediately, while others were a little less inspired (hence the 4, not 5, stars). In other words, the album is a little disjointed, but packs some truly amazing gems in there. A little something for everyone, too: art-folk, bluegrass, roots music, gothic Americana, and even some Balkan inflections. I recommend a listen.
