Auld Lang Syne - This Rochester NY band anchors itself acoustically around songs of epic fragility and depth. The band tumbles, caterwauls, and careens like ragged lullabies sung by weary souls with no one to sing them to sleep. Or perhaps you could call them folk tunes where the parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme is replaced by, gunpowder, tears, whiskey, and blood. The music represents a persistent loneliness tempered with a lyrical resolve and fortitude. It is an absolutely gorgeous slab of haunting, ethereal Americana.

Though hearing words like "mellow" and "introspective" may send some music fans fleeing, Auld Lang Syne is engaging with a kind of smoldering lust. I'm telling you, it ain't boring.

"We have models," says bassist Gallogly. "People who have gone before us, like Leonard Cohen. And he's not boring." And like Cohen, Auld Lang Syne is also a no-club lone wolf without a set genre to park under.

"I don't believe in genres anyway," says Dick. Yeah, neither do most bands. But let's face it, musicians are often dealing with listeners who act like kids with their vegetables; they won't eat it until they know what it is. So Dick sheds a little light.

"I feel like we're following in the footsteps of people like Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Cohen, even up to, like, Kurt Cobain," he says. "People who just did what they had to do in their time, and it was honest. Good human music."
