    I’ve only listened to this one a couple times, but it is already my favorite recording from this Rhode Island based duo (plus guests.) The Iditarod does something in modern psychedelic music that many people are not–creatively exploring the lyrical side of european folk. I’m not saying they are doing european folk songs, but rather, what they are doing feels closer to that tradition than anything else. But do not think this is anything less than exploratory underground folk music–much akin to six organs of admittance, charalambides (when they chose to do folk) and even the frentic folk underground of Japan (Makami, Tomokawa, Inaba). Beautiful, melancholic, with extraordinary vocals by Carin and equally compelling guitar work by Jeff–‘Ghost, Cat, et al.’ is perhaps the best starting point for The Iditarod, and probably the most readily available.
