Day 153 – Straylings

A spot of late night psychedelic folk/rock dark weirdness today from London outfit Straylings. Kind of sounding like a White Rabbit-era Jefferson Airplane who have been hijacked by Karen O, this is solid Americana-tinged guitar work combined with some very … Continue reading

Day 152 – Punch Brothers

I’ve posted a couple of bluegrass-y, folk-y tunes in the past (check out the early post about Old Man Markley in month 1 in particular) and it’s a genre that I do enjoy listening to from time to time – … Continue reading
