Carina Round- Tigermending http://www.carinaround.com/
I very much enjoy the unexpected blend of sweet and sour on Carina Round’s newest CD. Tigermending is one of the more refreshing albums I’ve heard in a while. Carina Round is playing tonight at The Casbah in San Diego and tomorrow (May 2nd) at The Satellite in LA.
Greylag- The Only Way to Kill You http://www.greylagmusic.com/
This debut EP from a lovely folk band based out of Portland is getting me through my afternoon. The soft voices and delicate instrumentation come together for a series of wistful tunes that fit my mood perfectly. Greylag is opening for Augustana at The El Rey on May 12th. It’s going to be a great show!
The Spring Standards- yellow/gold http://thespringstandards.com/index.php
I haven’t yet listened to the double EP, yellow/gold from NYC-based The Spring Standards, but just watched the video below and I’m a fan of the band, so I’m intrigued…thought you might be too! Check them out!
