Cherokee Red has convinced me that psychedelia and folk combine to make some of the most haunting, entrancing music. The sextet’s self-titled debut LP, released this past April, is a continuous flow of soft chants, fragile guitar chords, and the soothing incantations of songstress, Christiana Bartolini. The opening track on Cherokee Red, “Vaya Con Dios,” is perhaps the most cheerful and still has a ghostly aura. Like every other song on the album, it is a twisted lullaby, gentle enough to put you to sleep but spooky enough to make you nervous about what’s going to happen when you close your eyes. Enjoy.
