This is Deer Country is the stripped down folk band youíd expect to find in the snowy North woods of the Upper Peninsula. Boy/girl vocal harmonies, catchy guitar lines, and great songs. Its sort of strange that you donít find bands like this more often, I guess people just like rocking out too much. Not that Dan and Kate donít rock, far from it. They just do things their own way-- collaborating with people, playing in living rooms, and partying hard.
The Daylilly King EP is their first recording and we are lucky to have it. Gorgeously recorded by Keith Kinnear, This is Deer Country sound better than ever. Just the right amount of ambiance and back up instruments to really make the songs shine.
The bottom line is if you are a fan of heartfelt indie folk, then you should really check this out.
This is Deer Country is Houghton's answer for the town's indie folk shortage. You will be amazed at the songs and sounds on this disc. Kate and Dan really went all out for this recording and let me tell you, it was worth the wait. Also, I feel like it is my duty to warn you that you might fall in love. Comes in a swell digipack!
