Last fall I received an email from various members of the indie-folk group Balto announcing their newest EP, Monuments. The follow-up to their hugely popular album October’s Road, Mounments is a huge step forward for a band that has quickly established a reputation for great songwriting, warm harmonies, and catchy sing-a-longs. Now expanding their sound with a full-band, Balto has created something exciting, powerful, sprawling, and soaring with their lively combination of mandolins, banjos, guitars, pianos, and drums. Monuments is a progressive collection of songs in what I’m sure will be a great series of future albums that will stand as a testament to Balto’s evolution and growth as well as evidence of their brilliant potential.
