Hoax Funeral is creating a small stir in UK indie-folk circles; getting airplay on Radio 1 & 2, and a write-up in this months Q Magazine. But they are essentially a DIY outfit, creating a label called Sacred Cow to release their debut Pour Away The Ocean. You would expect to find todays track Melting (Into Corners) in a mid-west open mike in it’s arangement, but we hear a small celtic motion in the vocal stream. It reflects the make-up of the band, with American singer/songwriter Anjy Hall leading the band through their international folk influences, and finding some interesting musical points from the UK/US traditions.
