On this week’s roundup . . .
. . . pop rock, British folk x2, some dusty americana, a little singer-songwriter goodness, and some indie rock from down under.
Noah Kahan – Young Blood
Catchy folk-pop, care of Stratford, Vermont.
No full-length album yet — more to come soon.
RIYL: Hozier, James Bay, good music, smores, Mowgli, Ed Sheeran
Huckleberry – Working Backwards
For all your easygoing, southwestern indie folk-rock needs, check out Huckleberry’s forthcoming record, Natural Selector, due out 4/7.
Jake Houlsby – Howl
More great folk from one of the UK’s finest up-and-coming singer-songwriters — a little darker and more brooding this time around.
Middle Kids – The Edge of Town
As it turns out, Sydney, Australia is home to one of indie rock’s most promising young acts.
Their self-titled debut EP is out now.
Esme Patterson – Tiny Desk Concert (live @ NPR)
Here’s 11.5 minutes of Esme Patterson being lovely.
Joey Landreth – Whiskey
Get a little folky and soulful with Mr. Landreth.
You can check out his new album right here.
Bruce Springsteen – Growin’ Up (live @ Brisbane)
The Boss: still one of the all-time greats.
If this one doesn’t put a smile on your face, then your face might be broken.
Until next week, cheers.
