Flake Music - When You Land Here It's Time To Return
Flake Music's "When You Land Here It's Time To Return" is a bit rough and exploratory, but still catchy fuzzy pop. The Shins first incarnation.
Horse Feathers - Words Are Dead
Stunning debut from Portland folk-songwriter duo Horse Feathers! Justin Ringle's voice fills a room with startling results, carrying a strength that elaborates on the burdens of broken relationships. The album's stark honesty and open-wound vocal deliveries are as personally effecting as they are orchestrated musically, and for that credit is due to prodigal multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick, who jumps from instrument to instrument. Influenced by such artists as Nick Drake and Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen, Horse Feathers evokes the sound of being optimistically broken.
