Fistful Of Mercy

As I Call You Down

(Hot)

Sounds Like: A rock “supergroup” comprised of Ben Harper, Dhani Harrison (George’s son) and Joseph Arthur pedaling acoustic, harmonized koombayah junk.

Free Association: Ben, you’ll never be as cool as when you smoked a ton of herb.

For Fans Of: Monsters of Folk, Traveling Wilburys, ELO, George Harrison.

Johnny Flynn

Been Listening

(Transgressive)

Sounds Like: London-based nouveau folk that’s joyous, brassy and buoyant with help from strings, harmonies and guests like Laura Marling to make it shine.

Free Association: How do Brits make better Americana than most jokesters over here?

For Fans Of: Mumford & Sons, Langhorne Slim, better Bright Eyes.

Eskmo

Eskmo

(Ninja Tune)

Sounds Like: The San Fran producer and performer’s electronica is layered with sound effects like drips, glitches and pops plus grimey, slow dub-flavored beats.

Free Association: Not exactly dance music, maybe if it was remixed and sped up.

For Fans Of: Flying Lotus, the Bug, Glitch Mob, Salem.
