The Whispering Tree: Invisible Forces
(Independent)

On their fourth album, Beacon-based, Franco-American folk duo Eleanor Kleiner and Elie Brangbour continue their mixed bag of style, weaving eight tunes from various bolts of musical cloth. Number one on the International Folk DJ Chart in September 2018, Invisible Forces leads with "These Houses," a soulful piano ballad with harmonized gospel-esque vocals detailing the melancholy entropy of houses, almost begging to understand who and what events the decaying structures once endured.

Upbeat and mysterious, the gypsy jazz of "Fat Cat" showcases Kleiner's French-inflected serenade of a shady rich character. "California" is a feel-good pop song of hope and reinventing oneself, while "Little Sailor" is a brief a cappella questionnaire to a seafarer that makes for a perfect lullaby of male/female harmonies. The Whispering Tree live is an intimate slice of warm folk roots, so check Chronogram's winter events listings for local performances. Thewhisperingtree.com
