Olden Yolk / Mega Bog

Recommended by Ben Salmon

Some people work their whole lives to try to get one psychedelic folk-pop band successfully off the ground, but Shane Butler has two. One is the underrated Boston outfit Quilt, which has three excellent albums to its name and seems to get better as it goes along. But while Quilt is (seemingly) on a break, Butler has teamed up with Caity Shaffer to turn Olden Yolk—an old side project—into more of a real band. That means tour dates (this is the group’s first time out West) and a self-titled album, released in February on the Trouble in Mind record label. Olden Yolk is one of 2018’s best records so far, a mellow (but not momentum-less) mix of strummy folk, overcast indie-pop, memorable melodies, and subtle motorik grooves. Along for the ride on this West Coast tour: Seattle-rooted, genre-blind sonic adventurers Mega Bog.
