Quick Thoughts: A gorgeous, cozy folk record perfect for the season without being seasonal. I liked this quite a bit, and it was one I randomly tripped up on and ended up very glad that I did. Even in a busy week this is worth the time.
Songs of Note: "Addition," "Runner," "Boundary," "Who Will I Be"
Quick Thoughts: Twin Oaks does dreamy, floaty indie music that just works very well. This is one of those albums that you can feel was meticulously put together, and the results are just song after song after song that impresses. Don't miss out on this one this week.
Songs of Note: "Magnolia," "Salt Flats," "Stranger," "Soft Lights"
Album: FEEP has landed
Quick Thoughts: I wanted to highlight this listen, as FEEP, on the surface, doesn't seem like something of interest, but it turns out that this is a really smart and really catchy indie rock effort out of Boston with a number of really great moments. I kept getting surprised by it to the point that I was very happy this landed on our radar. Check it out.
