Like most bands throughout the nation, Adam Arcuragi and The Lupine Chorale Society will be making their way south this week to play a handful of shows at SXSW. AA & LCS write earnest folk which they describe as Death Gospel or “anything that sees the inevitability of death as a reason to celebrate the special wonder that is being alive and sentient. That’s the hope with the songs…It is exciting that we can reflect upon it as intelligent life and do something to make that wonder manifest.” This really doesn’t describe the music itself which is a mixture of southern hymns, folk, outlaw country and Americana.
The band released Like a fire that consumes all before it…, their sophomore album, on January 31st and you can stream it below. The album is quite the journey through foot stomping and powerful tracks like “Oh I See”, “President’s Song” and “The Well” and into slower paced songs “You’d Think This Was Easy”, “Port Song”.
If you’re going to be down in Austin this week then be sure to add Adam Arcuragi and The Lupine Chorale Society to your list of must see bands.
