The fifth week of the folk-unlike series on Gulls Window Circus alphabetically covers artists from H-K, with the first 3 songs featuring 3 artists I missed during their proper time. Now that we are deep in this companion series to folk-like, I can see that this series still mostly works as Folk rock, psychedelic folk, indie folk and acoustic rock, but definitely not in all tracks. I worked to dig out lesser-known artists for folk-like, so it is nice to give them one more change to shine, with the initial ‘folk’ constraint removed. I believe any rocker with an open mind will be thoroughly entertained.

The fourth week of the folk-unlike series on Gulls Window Circus covers the letters F-H alphabetically. The artists in this show correspond to shows #615 and 616 in the original folk-like series, but don’t have the folk feel that qualified them for the original series. As a result you have some excellent music by artists plying their signature sound, which in some cases retains a folk rock, psychedelic folk, indie folk, or acoustic rock feel. Each track brings great joy to me, and surely will to you as well.

The second week of the Gulls Window Circus folk-unlike series finishes the letter ‘B’ and settles in on ‘C’. You can go back to shows #613/614 to hear the original folk-like selections. This time around I’ll be playing my fave songs from the artists, with no stylistic boundaries. Much good music ahead!

Today starts the folk-unlike series on Gulls Window Circus. This is the companion series to folk-like (shows #613-624), with the ‘folk’ restraint removed. You will hear the same artists as before played alphabetically, but this time I’ll be choosing my favorite track instead hunting for the folk-like song. You will notice that many of the artists in the previous series do not sound anything like folk in their normal guise, and you will get to hear some incredible music as we go.
