Hamilton Trading Co. – The Wrong Reasons

It’s true, Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country” must have been in reference to girls born and bred here up North. With milky skintones, cascading frost-bitten locks and Russian fur hats, they’re a real vision. Hamilton Trading Co seems to have gotten the best of them, with a choir of huddled young girls and boys singing in unison to traditional type folk songs to the lead of what sounds like John Darnielle, seemingly plucked straight from the Mountain Goats.
