Clogs - Lantern (2006)

Folk-and-classical-leaning, instrumental post-rock from a NYC 4-piece that includes The National's Bryce Dessner. Tastefully understated arrangements made up of guitar, melodica, viola, violin, mandolin, bassoon, and percussion, among others. Lantern has been a go-to wintertime listen for me since pretty much the day it came out, so maybe it can help get some of you through the cold months as well.
