Album Review
Ξ¦   The nine–track Dead Oceans Records debut from Portland, Oregon's Greylag suggests that the trio must have endured a rigorous classic rock education during their formative years, which along with Bob Dylan and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, included a whole lotta Led Zeppelin III. Steeped in the bucolic, harmony–laden vistas of Fleet Foxes, yet bound to earth by a deep love for the heartland, Greylag's country, blues, and Americana leanings ultimately win out over any predilection for indie folk over–sharing, despite the fact that their origins lie in the perpetually overcast, Elliott Smith–haunted Pacific Northwest. That said, there is a punchy, Hammer of the Gods–inspired retro–rock feel to cuts like "Another," "Kicking," and "Mama," the latter of which wouldn't have sounded out of place on Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Howl, but those "Immigrant Song" moments are outnumbered by more "Gallows Pole" and "Tangerine"–inspired confections like "Arms Unknown" and "Black Sky," both of which incorporate elements of bluegrass and Appalachian folk into the mix, and then fortify them with enough spooky, Zep–minded mysticism to make them seem weightier than they really are. Producer Phil Ek, who has helped like–minded bands such as the Shins and Band of Horses expand their sound, does a nice job here with what is essentially an acoustic guitar, drum, and vocal foundation, layering in ghostly mandolins, backing vocals, and cavernous electric leads that swoop in from above and fill in some of the hard–panned spaces like some kind of celestial mortar, resulting in a sound that's both divine and earthy, yet carrying songs that are largely ephemeral.
Ξ¦   ""In many ways, Greylag’s self–titled debut album feels like a culmination. For the Portland trio themselves, it represents the endpoint of four years of hard work, sifting through musical influences both modern and classic en route to a formidable cocktail of rustic yet metropolitan rock ’n’ roll. The music rumbles and gleams, like a capable outdoorsman who also happens to be extremely well–groomed. Furthermore, that string of influences stretching from CSNY to Band Of Horses suggests Greylag as the next step in a continuum of wistful, guitar–powered folk–rockers. They seem like an antidote handed down from God to shut up certain people who like to complain that they just don’t make rock bands like they used to." — Stereogum
In french:
Ξ¦   Encore un groupe issu de la tres talentueuse scene indie de Portland. Un excellent premier album! (Merci a mon ami, El Céher)
Ξ¦   Based out of Portland, Oregon, Greylag (named after the old world ancestor of modern domestic geese) specializes in a heady blend of overcast Pacific Northwest folk–rock and rousing indie Americana that falls somewhere between Fleet Foxes, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, Band of Horses, and Led Zeppelin III. Formed around the talents of Virginia native Andrew Stonestreet (lead vocal, acoustic guitar), California native Daniel Dixon (lead guitar, keyboards), and Texas native Brady Swan (drums), the trio enlisted Phil Ek (Modest Mouse, the Shins) to produce their eponymous debut album, which arrived via Dead Oceans Records in the autumn of 2014.
