I don’t know if the members of the folk duo House and Land are actually transcendentalists, but when you consider the band’s name and the nature of their music, it’s not an unfounded assumption. On their self-titled debut LP, House and Land celebrate the traditional music of their Appalachian roots, composing droney, meditative folk songs on guitars, fiddles, shruti box, and a half dozen other traditional acoustic instruments. The result is a masterful album that feels firmly rooted in the tunes and styles of Appalachia.
