“I am blue. No, that’s the moon through the window in my room.” It takes a good ninety seconds before the disorienting vocals start in “My Room,” a recent single from Quebecois folk quintet Les Poules à Colin. The group – four women and a banjo player named Colin – harmonize over these sort of gloomy, Celtic-inspired songs, some in English, some in French. Alternating between old folk songs and new pieces, violinist/vocalist Béatrix Méthé and pianist/vocalist Sarah Marchand trade off, alternating sweet harmonies with sinister forebodings. Morose is the title of their third album, and it describes the sound fairly accurately, though reviews of their live shows suggest that they also know how to have fun.
