Fire on Fire | Five Song EP | ReviewTradition must adapt in order to survive. This could be the motto of Fire on Fire. Combining elements of old-timey singalongs and group harmonizing with a slight experimental folk tint, Fire on Fire prove there is wisdom in old ways, all the while investing these archaic forms with a 21st lyrical concern and urgency Â like putting new wine in old bottles. The band share a house in Portland, Maine, and this community vibe seeps from these songs conjured from an array of acoustic instruments. Spreading five songs over a half hour, the group capture a psychedelic campfire folk feel: their enthralling and exciting songs speak the modern primitive within us - their fluid, rambling folkways evoking a joyous, communal sense of belonging, with occasional hints of the junkyard orchestrations of Tom Waits. Fire on Fire are a fine addition to Michael Gira's Young God imprint and this extended player is housed in a handmade screen-printed sleeve Â an ideal home for this essential rustic recording.
