New Music Thursday!

The Chieftans- Voice of the Ages
Caity says: New takes on traditional Irish music! Incorporates artists from a variety of genres, including indie-rock, Americana, Scottish folk; just look at the list of featured artists!!! (Bon Iver, The Civil Wars, The Decemberists, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Paolo Nutini, Lisa Hannigan… to name a few.)

Down in the Willow Garden (featuring Bon Iver):

 

Hospitality- Hospitality
Mix with: Belle & Sebastian, Vampire Weekend
Caity says: Rich arrangements of keyboards, horns, synths, guitars, and a compelling female voice. Catchy pop aspects that encourage dancing.

Lana Del Rey- Born to Die
Caity says: Beautifully crafted pop songs, with 50s female vocals. Distinctive sound, but sometimes the melodramatic production is overwhelming.

 

Laura Gibson- La Grande
Mix with: Feist, The Decemberists
Kate says:  Nice folk-y female vocals. Well balances between slightly ambient/ airy and more fast paced.

Nada Surf- The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy
Mix with: Telekinesis, Band of Horses
Kate says: Sounds a lot like past Nada Surf, if a bit more upbeat. Fairly simple and catchy throughout.

Of Montreal- Paralytic Stalks
Mix with: Deerhunter, Passion Pit
Kate says: Good psychedelic-indie-pop with intriguing lyrics.
Caity says: It’s basically a hippie vomit up of all the drugs they’ve taken in their life.

Regeneration (multiple artists)
Steven says: Groovy contemporary music mixed with classics or classical music.

Sharon Van Etten- Tramp
Mix with: Neko Case, The National
Caity says: Hypnotic female vocals with a variety of instrumentation, with a sense of folk foundations and emotionally propelled rock aspects.

Serpents:

Terra Lightfoot- Terra Lightfoot
Mix with: Blind Pilot, Laura Veirs
Kate says: Folk/rock/pop singer songwriter. The best songs are where she successfully focuses within a genre, ie. the most strictly folk, rock, or pop tracks.

About The Author

Kate Causbie

Kate is an Art/ Psychology double major (that's the latest plan, at least) who also happens to be addicted to a music. A fan of finding creative ways to use the internet to communicate ideas and information, she helps out with the WUSO web site as needed. Kate loves lots of different bands for the lots of different places they bring her back to, and is terribly indecisive about choosing favorites, but such a list might include Bon Iver, Coldplay, Stars, Andrew Bird, The Tallest Man on Earth, Angus & Julia Stone, Arcade Fire, Regina Spektor, and basically any band from Seattle, for irrational reasons having to do with hometown nostalgia.
