Bloomsday - "Dollar Slice"

Bloomsday is the project of New York City's Iris James Garrison, and just released a new single. "Dollar Slice" is this perfect mix of modern folk and country. It doesn't sound at all like it could be made by an NYC artist, particularly with the amount of slide guitar. There's also a ton of indie rock noise sprinkled throughout, making "Dollar Slice" remind me of the more mellow side of Wednesday, and the way the song builds will have you thinking of Lucy Dacus. Bloomsday have created a powerful and engaging song only made stronger by the emotion in Garrison's vocals. It might be premature to say this based on one song, but expect to hear a lot more about Bloomsday throughout the year.

Iris James Garrison says of their new song:

 “I'm not religious. But I am into the idea of mystical, higher power – whatever that means – and that power seeing me, and my bullshit, and calling it out. That’s kind of godly to me.”
