Album Review

Formed in college like so many other bands, this outfit delves into folk-rock, also like so many other college bands. Thankfully, their songwriting ability (a duty shared by three of the four members) is good, and they have developed a tight, accessible sound. What is missing is a distinct character to set them truly apart from the pack. Lead singer Reid Genauer hits all the notes, but his vocal ability is nothing special. While album opener "Roads" has an easy forward motion and some catchy hooks, the disc gets nondescript as it moves on.

Customer Reviews

Great Album. Great Band

Strangefolk is an awesome Vermont based band. Weightless in Water is one of my favorite albums because of great songs like "Valhalla" and "Whatever". I was surprised when I found them on iTunes! If you like jam bands then buy this album!

Bad review!!

Don't even bother reading the album review. It is way off base. Who writes that crap. I like how they only wrote about "Roads", like they didn't even listen to the rest of the album. There are many choise tracks: "Whatever", "Who Am I", "Sad", "All the Same". Give it a chance.

itunes review doesn't do justice

I would seriously like to meet the "uber hip" apple music reviewer that was assigned to this album. He knocks the lead singer's (genauer's) voice, presumably because he does not carry the same whiney dog falcetto a la Coldplay, or whatever SoHo coffee shop band this pierced nose condescending record store clerk-of-an itunes reviewer- listens to in the first place. Strangefolk, and genauer's other outfit Assembly of Dust are two bands today that combine an important side of folk with a smooth american rock sentiment. This album is a little ways from refined but shares some almost timeless studio album rock. So you can sip on your raspberry latte and pretend to praise Bono for saving the world, mr. itunes reviewer, but you will never know what you're talking about

Formed together by two college students from the University of Vermont, Reid Genauer (vocals/ guitar) and Jon Trafton (guitar) spent the first year together under the name Stranefolk while performing in pubs and coffee houses all throughout campus.

With their own style of merging bluegrass, folk, rock and blues,...
