The Acorn "Crooked Legs"
Influenced by Honduran folk music of the 1950s, as well as by West Indian rhythms, Glory Hope Mountain, the sophomore release from Canadian indie rockers The Acorn, finds the band digging deeper than ever–lyrically and musically. Theme-wise, the album is an homage to frontman Rolf Klausener's mother, tracing her unstable beginnings in Honduras to a life-changing relocation to Montreal. The storyline is accompanied by an intricate musical arrangement of strings and percussion.
