Asleep In My Shoes

(Self Released)

Sounds Like: The Philadelphian and Mason Porter member’s blend of folk-rock isn’t country so much—it’s dynamic, dark and introspective with pretty pianos and guitars.

Free Association: Three cheers for the local man doin’ his thing and doin’ his damn self.

For Fans Of: Jason Collett, Wissahickon Chicken Shack, Hoots & Hellmouth.

Yanni

Truth Of Touch

(Yanni Wake Entertainment)

Sounds Like: Dreamy, wordless compositions full of drum machines, synths and mystery instruments perfect for soundtracks/scores of people running on the beach.

Free Association: The Greek longhair’s still got it (the cheese) and going strong at 56.

For Fans Of: Enya, Genesis, John Tesh, mustaches, hairy backs.

Bobby Long

A Winter Tale

(ATO)

Sounds Like: Countrified Brit folk from the BFF of Robert Pattison, a prolific man—this is his fifth LP in two years and second on ATO—Tale is raspy, hearty roots rock.

Free Association: Probably got a Dylan boner at 16 and it’s never really gone down.

For Fans Of: Ray LaMontagne, David Gray, mediocre songwriting.

The Disciplines

Virgins of Menace

(Spark & Shine)
