5. Mat Hunsley- Au Contraire
Mat Hunsley is one young man who is on a journey to find his feet in the game of life. An acoustic singer/songwriter from Newcastle by way of Lincolnshire, his early demos were recorded from his student bedroom one snowy February morning on a cheap but portable second-hand recorder. The raw, stripped-back songs he chronicled that day are reminiscent of the rustic, ethereal charms of Mat’s musical idols such as Bon Iver, Ben Howard and James Vincent Mcmorrow.
4. Family and Friends- Love and Other Drugs
As these things so often do, Family And Friends began as a lowly seedling of inspiration. “Good music, good people.” A stalk gave yield to branches. One became six, a collective of musicians by trade, lovers by spirit. Inspired by a life worth living, the Fam and Pals remained rooted with three ambitions in heart, mind, and soul: the people, the music, the memories. The reflection represented by blend of earnest folk rock and a communal spirit pouring a collective heart into something bigger than itself.
3. The Color and Sound- Graves
The Color and Sound began in the winter of 2012 with six friends focused on writing music together. While writing and recording their debut EP, The Color and Sound found themselves on a mission to take their vast array of influences— ranging from folk to dance pop to pop punk— and spread them across a fun and cohesive album that everyone could enjoy. The resulting sound includes an array of group vocals, harmonies and pop simplicity.
2. Pill Friends- Rituals
Pill Friends are a 4-piece lo-fi bummer band from New Hope, PA.
1. Barnswallow- Josephine
Josephine is the addictive a-side from Fall River, MA foursome Barnswallow. It’s their most recent 7” and features the band’s go-to sound full of humid guitar distortion and earworm melodies. The chorus is just as strong as the blaring fuzz, proving Barnswallow to be one of those rare bands that can pull off playing noisy rock and roll that’s accessible to a larger audience than the usual sweaty, unkempt dudes found toe gazing in dirty basements.
