Raising the Fawn
"Cableknit Clouds"

Raising the Fawn
Raising the Fawn
(self-released, 2001)

Another free bin discovery! I came across their third album, The Maginot Line, in the free bin at, naturally, my fave local shop for music fans. The cover art was intriguing and the band name . . . odd. When I got it home and into the compact disc playing device, I found it to be a worthwhile risk (hey, I coulda thrown my back out carrying it home!). The structure of the songs was a bit proggish, but it was definitely not progressive rock; 'twas more indie rock that wasn't afraid of extended musical pieces. Now that I'm thinking about it, one could possibly get away with calling them a more gentle version of Thee Speaking Canaries, whom I featured last month.

Today's song is from their eponymous debut, which was self-released and is long out-of-print. It took me a couple of years to find a copy, and the search was well worth it.

According to their MySpace, as of August, 2007, they were not sure if they would be continuing as a group. It's been three years since then, and I've seen no sign of activity.
