The UK’s Moulettes merrie-olde-England-via-Brooklyn outfits signify hipster dilettantes. The first notes of cello and violin provide a swelling stream on which float the lovely harmonies of Hannah Miller and Dr. Ruth Skipper. It’s deeply rooted in British Isles folk music, with a left turn: crescendo builds, little jazz inflections creep in, the minor key turns suddenly major. The two female voices are joined by a pair of men’s, and a Queen-like four-part harmony swells to arresting volume. Dizzying shifts in dynamics and time signatures follow, the songs obeying a twisty logic of their own. Propelled by dramatic accompaniment sometimes reminiscent of progressive metal (although played on strings and bassoon), the lyrics fly by, sometimes at breakneck speed.
