Insomniac Folklore! / Press

““We all knew that eventually somebody was going to combine The Ramones with Joan Baez. Well, that time is here, courtesy of Portland-based ‘tantrum folk’ pioneers Insomniac Folklore... The screaming and stomping goes well with the acoustic music, trust us.””

Yakima Herald

““Self-described as ‘tantrum folk,’ these musicians from Portland create a delightful cacophony of acoustic guitars and accordions, sounding sort of like a local version of mewithoutYou playing in your basement. As this indie folk party effortlessly dances through songs that are seriously satirical, songs that are outrageously silly, and songs that may be doing both things at once (see ‘Kill A Baby, Save A Tree’), you almost wonder if someone like Reese Roper is involved. But this is mostly the brainchild of Tyler Hentschel, whose fascinatingly deep bass vocals wander the somber minor chords with a resonating reverence. Ultimately, though, this is just a group of friends who want to drive to your town, see some good shows, and jump around.””

““Insomniac Folklore has mastered the sing-along acoustic folk ’70s vibe. Check out their new full-length, titled LP, out now.””
