FRANKIE

Harmony so sugary sweet, killer grooves and soft mean beats. FRANKIE ,a 4 piece “twinkle-rock” group from Vancouver, BC. Mixing ambient indie rock attitude and super-clean folk-pop songs. FRANKIE really commands your attention, without really demanding it. The harmonies between lead singer/guitarist Francesca Carbonneau and singer/pianist Nashlyn Lloyd are soothing and exciting all at the same time. Their song “Don’t Be Low” harkens back to old school R&B, with tight flow and catchy rhythms, and top not musicianship from all 4 members. We love the tasteful restraint, which really allows the song to breathe naturally and build dramatically. We look forward to their as-of-yet un-named EP to be released in the near future, and come check them out at The Paddock May 7th. And if you miss these ladies tonight, see them in Hamilton May 10th @ the Sanctuary.-Cody Wright

Album Premiere: Old Earth - .​.​.​until they're called

Bay Area based experimental folk rock singer/songwriter, Todd Umhoefer, better known as Old Earth has given us the pleasure of premiering his brand new EP entitled ...until they're called. If the name of his collaborative music project doesn't give you an idea of the sound of his music, we can surely report that this new Old Earth release is rootsy, earthy and folk rock based with strong elements of avant classical music.

The album features four other musicians, mysteriously referred to as, Burnett, Fritch, Lopez and Moen bring an eerie "Sleepy Hollow" style of depth to the three track EP. There are a couple creative elements that we like: first thing is that the three songs are composed to musically play into one another, making the EP one long 12 minute track. We also like that Umhoefer collaborates with a female vocalist, as mixed gender collaborations seem to be cropping up in the local folk scene these days. We've recently seen Travis Hayes work a female voice into his new music and we think it's cool.

Old Earth is a polished but not self serving solo project that has a lot of sincerity and even more portential. He's got the "knowing" vibe of Neutral Milk Hotel and is willing to take creative risks

Enjoy Old Earth's ....until they're called in its entirety below via bandcamp.com

Honeysuckle EP Release Show Tomorrow Night @ Out of the Blue Too in Cambridge

 “Josephine”, the single from Honeysuckle’s forthcoming debut album, Arrows, is everything that is right with folk and country music. The intro immediately drew me in; there’s something about banjos and mandolins that makes me exceedingly happy, but banjos and mandolins played together--beautiful.

Along with the instrumentation, the lead vocals on this song are powerful, yet smooth, sweet and sorrowful. The band’s generous use of harmonies and backing vocals makes “Josephine” a song worthy of several plays on their Bandcamp.

Honeysuckle will be having their release show for Arrows tomorrow night, April 29, at Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery in Central Sq., Cambridge. For more info about the show, click here.

ANAMAI

ANAMAI is a murky mixture of ambient folk music, which proves to be calming and thought provoking. Layering airy vocals and spacious industrial sounding instruments is their stamp. Just recently they released their video for “Half” a song that lulls you, and still leaves room for you to imagine, and engulf yourself in the atmosphere they’ve created. This is definitely a tune to chill out to, maybe while laying on your floor looking at all your black light ceiling posters? Go Join them 04/24 at Cinecycle or they play in St.Catherines 04/25 for the In The Soil Festival! -Courtney Chalapenko
