Freak Folk
Inspired by such artists as Limbus, Third Ear Band, and The Trees Community Wikipedia16, Freak Folk is a sub-genre of Psychedelic Folk which emerged in the late 1990's out of the New Weird America underground folk scene. Spearheaded by bands like early Animal Collective and Danielson, it delves deeper into the realms of psychedelia, often incorporating unconventional sounds or instruments into the mix. The genre has since been used to describe artists like Comus and Exuma that predate the movement which have the same strange style of later artists.
