Highly recommended listening:
Arches National Park
I'm in love with the mellow organic vibe of this EP. It explores humans' connection with nature and the wild essence, and reminds me of artists as diverse as The Books, Fleet Foxes, and even Baths.
And the Giraffe
Second album from my good friends, dream-folk band And the Giraffe. A truly wonderful collage of folk honesty, naturally sprawling song structures, and ambient-textural washes of color.

My friend Ed makes awesome loopy, noodling beats via his bass/guitar/synth/drum machine ensemble. The live drums on this EP bring a great groove to it all. We're working on a split together right now!
