It’s impossible to peg singer/songwriter Daisy DeBolt’s music in conventional terms, since her raging art folk — filtered through a jazz improv sensibility — is utterly without reference. Accordion, flute, piano and mandolin flutter around DeBolt’s frank pronouncements, creating a kind of rogue vibe one might find in a French cafe situated on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. That these angular songs are meant to capture the essence of mountains is indication enough of DeBolt’s ambition. Not your average recording, in the best way possible. DeBolt unveils Just Mountain Songs Friday (December 1) at the Free Times Cafe.KH
