The Post-Timey String Band / Press

“While there are many "folk" bands in Columbia, perhaps none deserve the titse so much as The Post-Timey String band. A duo composed of vocalist/guitarist/kazoo player Kelley Mclachlan and multi-stringed player Sean Thomson, PTSB are more Gillian Welch & David Rawlings than She & Him, with a love of the most time-worn idioms of classic folk and blues songs and a blazing authenticity to support their claim as a "string band".”

"There’s a fine line between reverence and kitsch that must be straddled deftly when diving head-long into old-time music: too much of the former and revivalism is trumped by too-traditional genuflecting; too much of the latter, and you’re a joke band. Kelly Mclachlan and Sean Thomson imbue The Post-Timey String Band, which releases its debut tonight, with a proper balance: Their tunes are cute enough to add a cosmopolitan anti-folk sheen to their rural upbringing but played straight enough to avoid any shticky veneers. - P. Wall"
