Crafted with the elegance and grace of Guy Fieri writing a futuristic robot sequel to "Les Miserables," The Trolls have arrived. Ham-fisted Chicago garage rock born out of boredom, blood and basements.
Any flannel clad Bon Iver disciple can pick up an acoustic guitar and throw together a few bleeding-heart tunes dealing with well-worn folk tropes like love, loss and atonement. But only a select few can dig deep enough to transform cliché into palpable, gut-wrenching feeling. Enter Brennan Mackey, brainchild behind Denver-based group King Cardinal.
"Americana music from Chicago. I used to play around in some bands, and this is what I am doing now. Sometimes I play with some friends, and sometimes it's just me."
