3 Songs: On Repeat

Sam Beam And Jesca Hoop – “Every Songbird Says” (Love Letter for Fire, out now via Sub Pop is the result of the collaboration between Sam Beam of Iron And Wine and singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop.  Sam returns to his gentle folk ways and combines it with Hoop’s crystalline voice and quirky pop sensibilities and their debut album is an outstanding collection of duets in the classic country & western and folk traditions.)

Solids – “Blank Stare” (The Montreal trio return with a highly-anticipated new EP titled, Else, out now via Topshelf and Dine Alone Records.  The 4-song EP captures their hardcore punk spirit and thick, crunchy 90’s-inspired guitar tones that are bolstered by a melancholic yet melodic pop sense for a sound that recalls Hum and Dinosaur Jr.)

Black Mountain - “Mothers Of The Sun” (After celebrating ten years since their excellent debut, the Vancouver-based modern classic rockers recently released their aptly-titled fourth album, IV, via Jagjaguwar Records.  This time around they have added Rush and Pink Floyd-inspired analogue synths and hints of cosmic funk to their prog-leaning psych-rock riffage and stomping rhythms to great effect.)
