Baeble First Play: The Lush Acoustic Sweep of Son of Dov

    There's this misconception that all folk music is just one dude strumming a couple of chords on an acoustic guitar and singing his tunes. There's nothing wrong with that formula. Bob Dylan perfected it on Highway 61 Revisited, but like every genre of music, folk can be more than just its building blocks. And on his track "Boy On Fire," New Jersey acoustic folker Son of Dov builds a lush, sweeping arrangement on his guitar that proves even folk can be as ornate as chamber pop.

    The track is a slow burner but builds into something positively gorgeous. Son of Dov utilizes his soft but dusky voice to accentuate the quiet yearning and understated emotion built into the track. And as the guitar becomes more complicated and layered, the inherent tension and volatility bubbling beneath the surface of the track begins to surface. Here's hoping we hear more from Son of Dov in the near future.
