Seamus Cater & Viljam Nybacka are Amsterdam-based experimental folk duo. Seamus Cater is british and Viljam Nybacka is from Vaasa, Finland, but has lived in Amsterdam for the past twelve years or so. Together they’ve created a captivating folk album The Anecdotes. At times the album goes out of my comfort zone, but in the end it’s rather refreshing to listen to something more challenging than those three minute pop songs and sad whiskey-soaked country tunes for a change. And obviously there’s the beautifully phrased vocals and the traditional folk elements that will keep simple pop fan on board even if the minimalistic experimentation occasionally becomes too challenging. Just listen to the magic of Folk Music to judge yourself and stream/buy the album on their bandcamp.
