Dripping with reverb and soothing swells, confusion and longing seep through each fuzzy layer of the eerily captivating "Ginger (Water Birth)." Peculiar arrangements of keys, loops, and strings are hard to grasp even on multiple listens, but complex percussion and deep, detailed textures compel the listener to hit the play button over and over again.

In 2010, the Vermont based seven-piece collective Bobby relocated to a remote farmhouse in the hills of Western Massachusetts to record their self-titled debut. Although the band's avant-garde album was well-received, we have yet to hear a follow up.

For now, close your eyes and drift into the muffled sounds and abysmal rhythms of Bobby's psychedelic folk.
