3 Songs: On Repeat

Maria Taylor – “Tunnel Vision” (The folk-pop songstress returns with her new album, Something About Knowing, this week via Saddle Creek Records.  Influenced by becoming a mother, the resulting album is much brighter and poppier yet no less atmospheric and dreamy, reflecting her newfound joy.  With help from producer Mike Mogis and her brother Macey Taylor, Maria has crafted an album that blends the best attributes of her previous albums into her best and most immediate work yet.)  

Botany – “Laughtrack” (Botany is the recording moniker for Spencer Stephenson, who creates translucent and vivid sound sculptures on his debut album, “Lava Diviner (Truestory)”, out now on Western Vinyl.  This non-album track features the distinct vocals of Father John Misty also known as J. Tillman formerly of Fleet Foxes, along with an almost eerie atmosphere of hazy, glimmering synths and a stuttering beat.)

Eureka Birds – “Mila Don’t Make A Sound” (The Baltimore-based band led by keyboardist and vocalist Justin Levy recently released their stellar sophomore album, Strangers.  Produced and mixed once again by Tyler Watkins of Margot And The Nuclear So And So’s, the album showcases their perfect blend of piano-led pop with intricate arrangements of analog synths, fuzzy guitars, dreamy melodies and catchy sing-along choruses.)
