This year in music seems to be the glory year of indie-band-members-gone-solo and Australian musicians. Go figure. Therefore, for your Sunday musical edification I present:
Daniel Rossen is the guitarist for Grizzly Bear. His solo stuff is really catchy and awesome. Give it a listen.
The Art of Sleeping is what I’m really excited about right now. Their other songs, Empty Hands and Colourblind seem to be receiving more attention on YouTube right now, but Above the Water is, to me, the real star. This song has it all: the heartfelt vocals, the beautifully evocative lyrics… kinda reminds me of Mumford and Sons. Perfect, perfect! Thanks, person who introduced this to me 🙂
