Muze PNote On its 2005 sophomore outing, DARKNESS AT NOON, A Hawk & a Hacksaw offers another fine set of tunes inspired largely by European folk. Led by multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Barnes, formerly of Neutral Milk Hotel, the group anchors its songs on melodic piano and/or accordion lines (see "Pastelka on the Train"), which occasionally spiral out into experimental territory as on "The Moon Under Water," a busy, fast-paced number. Issued a year before Beirut's GULAG ORKESTAR (which incidentally features Barnes and AHAAH bandmate Heather Trost), DARKNESS AT NOON serves as a nice companion piece to that record, by providing an indie portal into traditionally minded European music.

Professional Reviews

Uncut (p.105)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "Transylvanian wedding dances parley with mariachi, and folky carpaccios of cornet, harp, accordion, oud and Jew's harp are punctuated with hoofbeats and chanted phrases."

The Wire (p.53)
- "Barnes's music retains an otherworldly quality that gives his compositions a markedly strange hue."
