I am absolutely entranced by the darkly beautiful music of 'fō (Josh Cooke). His debut release comes out in a few weeks, on November 10, 2015. Take a listen to these songs from his eponymously titled album and marvel at not only his smooth voice but at the mysterious, chilling music itself. At first, all seems innocent but soon the familiar guitar sound gives way to skittering strings, and a mournful, lamenting bass. A folksy sense morphs into deeper, more somber layers of meaning.

The official video for "North" contains enigmatic images that perfectly support the eerie disquiet.

And here is the arresting, spooky "Sleep."

I can't wait until the 10th when I can hear the entire release.

UPDATE: 11/24/15 I have reviewed 'fō's entire album. Follow the link below.
