Album: Hunger and Thirst
Why I love it: The horns. They give the
band and the album such a cool, unique sound. And yet somehow it's still super mellow.
For fans of: Quiet Corral, Local Natives
Artist: The Mowgli's
Album: Sound the Drum
Why I love it: It's sing-songy, fun & upbeat. My fav songs are of course the ones that have
the entire band chiming in on the singing.
For fans of: Damion Suomi & the Minor Prophets, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
Artist: Trampled by Turtles

Three, Yonder Mountain String Band
Artist: The Wood Brothers
Album: Smoke Ring Halo
Why I love it: It's kind of country meets
a little bit bluesy.
For fans of: Justin Townes Earle, Anders Osborne
Album: Catching a Tiger
Why I love it: It's a little bit girly rock, a little bit singer/songwriter and a little bit near pop radio type of music. Sounds strange maybe,
Lissie makes it work.
