My Son Bison has spent the last five years obsessively forging its own brand of experimental folk, influenced as much by the Beach Boys as by Ravel or the gauchos of Argentina. The result is Two Faces and a Vase, a debut record that follows songwriters Dane Galloway and Joel Gleiser through a sloppy gauntlet of growth and self-loathing as they wrestle to reconcile the realness of existential ennui with the ugly entitlement it breeds. Recorded entirely on acoustic instruments – twelve-string guitar, upright bass, prepared piano, mandolin, strings, harp, horns, and more – Two Faces and a Vase is My Son Bison’s most cohesive work to date, every song shining light on where they’ve been while loudly declaring where they’re going.
