beefolk

Beefólk is a young Austrian band that Austria is falling in love with.
They are 6 virtuosi, who have developed a band sound together, which borrows from many inspirational sources like folk music of Iceland, the Balkan and Argentina.
Essentially this is a jazz band with the Live appeal of a rock band. Tight arrangements, loads of energy, a young and fresh spirit. The CD will feature original music by the band members, some angelic singing by Helgi Jonsson, irresistible grooves and haunting, fragile atmospheres. Muthspiel heard the band in 2002 for the first time and was immediately convinced by the power that came off the stage. There is not so much music out there with that kind of impact and material records is proud to present beefólk in May 2004.
2 Tours, one in May, one in October will support the release.
