Gifts or Creatures – Yesteryear Western Darkness

Gifts & Creatures

Gifts or Creatures is the musical platform for Lansing, Michigan husband-wife Brandon and Bethany Foote, they are active members of Michigan’s Earthwork Music Collective an organisation supporting and championing the cause for original music and environmental awareness in the Great Lakes region and have recently released their second album Yesteryear Western Darkness an eleven track album of original material.

Their brand of folk music is delivered with an understated elegance carefully fusing a range of instrumentation including electric guitars, Wurlitzer piano, pump organ, pedal steel, vibraphone, toy piano, cello and viola to bring to life songs of ‘midwestern folklore, old world history and cinematic soundscapes’. Brandon plays electric guitar and Bethany keyboards and they share vocal duties on the recording, together with a fine set of local players they’ve created a beautifully crafted album with lots of layers and detailing that’s a delight to listen too.
