Carsten Pieper Muskox really are (or alas, as it happens, have been) hard to label. Acoustic jazz/prog, folk, classical/minimal. Due to the composition/arrangement skills of leader Mike Smith, all these different ingredients - and unusual combination of instruments - work very well together! Favorite track: The Wren.
