Discovery: The Armadillo Paradox

The curiously titled The Armadillo Paradox are a creative partnership between American musicians Sol Chase and Jared Huskey, with American Defeat being their latest release.

By Jane Howkins

American Defeat is one of our favourite tracks of the year so far – it’s a folk song in the more traditional style, but also features elements of country, Americana and bluegrass. The track has a really haunting feel to the main melody, with the lyrics telling a poetic tale about the lie of the American Dream. It makes for a really interesting concept and those interested in American politics should give the track a whirl just for the lyrics themselves. Check out American Defeat below and see if you agree!
