Bellows is a Brooklyn-based recording project that is comprised of Eskimeaux member Oliver Kalib and Told Slant, and Fist & Palm is the duo’s debut album. Overall, the album is rather delicate, most of the time being subtle and quiet. At times it erupts with these frantic wabbling drums, large spontaneous orchestral sections, and random noises pushing the boundaries of pop and folk. It’s really something that’s absolutely lovely, and I honestly kind of enjoyed this album more than the last Eskimeaux project. It’s worth a listen!
