3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Pomegranates - "Softness" (Acoustic-based opening track from their new double EP In Your Face Thieves/Chesnut Attic out now on vinyl and digitally from Lujo Records. Both 5-song EPs were recorded with their friend Caleb Groh and features his vocals on two of the songs. Stripped down, mostly acoustic and without any restrictions, the Poms have given us an intimate gem as we wait for their next move.)

2. Gold Leaves - "Cruel/Kind" (New project of Grant Olsen from Seattle folk duo Arthur & Yu adds touches of R&B and doo-wop, orchestral instrumentation, and lush backing vocals from Thao Ngyuen and members of the Moondoggies to his brand of folk on his debut album, The Ornament, out now on Hardly Art Records.)

3. Alyssa Graham - "Watching The Sky" (A duet with Alyssa and Jesse Harris taken from the folk-pop singer-songwriter's new EP Lock, Stock and Soul out now on Sunnyside Records, has a breezy, jazzy vibe like Jesse's mid-90's project Once Blue. The excellent, iTunes-exclusive EP also features appearances by David Garza and Meshell Ndegeocello as well as a cover of the Grateful Dead's "High Time".)
