3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Jonathan Byerley - "I Still Pull The Silver (From The Penny Drawer)" (The frontman for the Brooklyn-based indie rock band Plates Of Cake steps out with a folk-leaning solo album, Catherine Market, out this week on La Société Expéditionnaire.  Lyrically, his music is Dylan-inspired and his voice resembles Cohen in timbre and the dusty, shuffling psych-folk shows a new and captivating side to the songwriter on his promising debut release.)


2.  Husky - "Tidal Wave"  (Led by the gentle yet dynamic voice of frontman Husky Gawenda,  the Australian-based folk rock quartet's critically-acclaimed debut album Forever So has been released in the U.S. for the first time on Sub Pop this week.  Gorgeous 3-part vocal harmonies and lush, orchestrated arrangements highlight their brand of folk that also features moments of psychedlia and traditional folk instrumentation.  Jump on the bandwagon now before you miss out!) 


3.  Debo Band - "Asha Gedawo" (Bouncy and infectious ska-inspired first single taken from the exciting self-titled debut album by the 11-member Boston-based band led by Ethiopian-American saxophonist Danny Mekonnen, out this week on Sub Pop's sister label Next Ambiance.  Their eclectic sound blends funk, folk and a little rock with their unique take on 60's and 70's Ethiopian pop music.)
