Residing in the gentle nexus of 60s folk and psychedelia, The Essex Green produced some of the most criminally underrated music of the naughts.  Taking influence from acts like The Sandpipers and Fairport Convention, they made faithful, brilliantly crafted stuff that gently updated the form without losing the inherent traditions.   45 more words
