3 Songs: On Repeat

Band Of Horses – “In A Drawer” (Ben Bridwell and crew return with their fifth album, Why Are You OK out now via Interscope.  Co-produced by the band and Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, the new album is a triumphant return to form with their blend of wistful and soaring, arena-worthy melodies alongside new elements such as analog synths, drum machines and prog-rock experiments.  Guest J. Mascis contributes his distinct vocals to the nostalgia-inducing standout single heard here.)       

Whitney – Golden Days” (Whitney is the new band featuring guitarist Max Kakacek formerly of Smith Westerns and  vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich formerly of Unknown Mortal Orchestra.  Together they step into the spotlight to create a melancholic yet melodic brand of soulful, country and folk leaning rock with laid-back, sun-soaked melodies on their stunning debut album, out now via Secretly Canadian.)

Big Thief – “Real Love” (Led by the lilting yet powerful vocals and vivid lyrical imagery of singer-songwriter and guitarist Adrianne Lenker, the Brooklyn based folk-rock band leans heavily toward the rock side – complete with noisy guitar freakouts and catchy, alt-rock melodies - on their aptly-titled debut album, Masterpiece out now on Saddle Creek Records.)
