No business making indie folk shit? You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but go back and listen to the Blue Album. Half of that shit was indie folk.

Do you guys know what indie folk sounds like? I've heard Baroness' whole discography and they don't have one song that sounds like indie folk.

^ yup, my bad.

At the very least, Steel That Sleeps the Eye and Twinkler can be considered indie folk shit. I'm not talking Devendra Banhart or anything, but in my opinion, at least a few songs can be considered indie folk.

I'm absolutely in love with this album. I can understand why fans of Baroness are comparing this to their older material in terms of quality, but that shouldn't detract from the fact that this has the signature Baroness style of writing and dynamic, just with a different mentality going into it. Like it's been said, if you go in with an open mind and don't go in expecting same ol' Baroness, you'll probably get a better experience.

Fuck yes I do, The Green half of this album sounds like a bad Fleet Foxes or Neutral Milk Hotel cover band you would hear at any hipster bar in the country. You like this album cool that's your opinion, but if you don't the Green half of this album sounds like indie folk (especially "Foolsong" and "Collapse") your fucking high.

So you're saying check these artists out if I dig the new Baroness. Weird way to approach this but I see.

I checked out those two songs. Doesn't sound like indie folk at all. (although you should still check out NMH)

Honestly, it just sounds like they're doing their progressive thing. I didn't like Collapse that much, but I was really digging Foolsong. Sounds like Explosions In The Sky with lyrics, or maybe even a mellower/jammier part of a BTBAM song. Me gusta.
