Footings - "American Beers"

According to Peterborough, NH's Footings's bio, they are "... a band that is sometimes just one person and other times five people." The one person is Eric Gagne, who is usually joined by Elisabeth Fuchsia on viola. The other three members of the band include Rick from Pile, Jordan from Rick Rude, and Candace from Bunny's a Swine, which makes Footings a supergroup in our eyes.

Their new song, "American Beers," is gruff yet beautiful Americana. It's based in traditional folk, but also adds in a heaping helping of indie rock. It includes this absolutely mesmerizing viola solo where there would normally be a guitar solo, which is always a nice change. The vocals don't harmonize perfectly... at first. The more the song goes on, the more perfectly they begin to fit together.The song is intensely mellow and is one of the more mesmerizing songs we've heard in a while.

You can listen to "American Beers" below. Footings self-titled album will be out September 28 on Don't Live Like Me. It can be pre-ordered here. For more on Footings, check them out on Bandcamp and Facebook.
