[PASTORAL ANGELS] Portland’s Welfare does not shy away from heavy instrumentation. The group’s latest effort, Chimaera, incorporates a fleet of classical strings set to the modes of Americana and indie rock. Shared, often falsetto vocals give Welfare a surreal quality you wouldn’t expect from a band wielding timeless weapons like the cello and violin. At times, Welfare is an intriguing balancing act set halfway between Appalachian field music and contemporary R&B. It is nothing if not smooth and emotive.
