ALBUM REVIEW: Hawktail Moves Through Nature on ‘Place of Growth’

For their newest project, Place of Growth, the members of Hawktail set out to create a seamless listening experience rather than a compilation of potential singles. What started as a ‘tune-swap’ challenge from Swedish folk fiddler Lena Jonsson, who composed the tune ‘Antilopen’ that appears on the album, became a full instrumental musical experience meant to be heard as a whole.

Free of the constraints of aiming for radio play, the quartet widely varies the length of its songs here.
