BSWC One-a-Day: White Owl - 15 Men on a Dead Man's Chest

This Neo-pirate shanty-like rock tune is from the Moscow-based White Owl. They describe themselves as "folk-core".
Since the tastes of the musicians don't belong to the same genre their arrangements are mixtures of such traditions as Alternative, Indie, Hard Rock, Hardcore, Disco, Folk Tradition and even Renaissance. The ways some folk standards such as "Lord of the Dance" or "Cunla" are presented can be taken for a joke. And this is true - it was a joke at first but then the WO found that the idea was well enough for taking it seriously.
I just discovered them and like what I hear so far on this darkening Sunday afternoon with Turkey Buzzards circling in the distance.
