Album reviews in 30 seconds or less.
Sounds Like: An Ohio native and friend of the Black Keys (Dan produced this one), she’s got bluegrass in her genes but kicks out the rock jams, too. Effortlessly.
Free Association: The Keys connection helps, no doubt. Would we care otherwise?
For Fans Of: Lissie, Best Coast x Laura Marling, cute girl rock, pixie haircuts.
Into The Dark Unknown
Sounds Like: An Oregonian homosexual whose gentle, artistic spirit comes across as deep, dark and nuanced on this rich and touching collection of stories.
Free Association: This is gay folk music, straights. Go ’head and try to hate on its beauty.
For Fans Of: Xiu Xiu x Jonsi, Cat Stevens x Elliot Smith, gay stuff.
