Time to catch up!
Sufjan Stevens – “No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross”
First off: New Sufjan harkens back to his folky, stripped-down roots. Harmonies galore.
G – “Outer Space”
Chill vibes from this electronica project by G (producer Jimmy Giannopoulos). Throw in a sax and I’m sold.
Will Joseph Cook – “Streets of Paris”
A voice like Brett Dennen and an upbeat chorus like Penguin Prison and Ra Ra Riot.
Jordan Klassen is back. The Vancouver-based musician, released his LP Repentance on Nevado Records almost a year ago. He actually recorded Repentance with producer/Multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Anderson who worked with another RTM favorite Aidan Knight. The easy comparison is to Sufjan Stevens, but his newest single has the indelible hook that could help get him some serious radio play in the near future.
And another for good luck.
Seattle-based Jessica Dobson is at it again with a new EP titled Always Waiting. Airy harmonies and melodic lines (resembling a similar cadence to those of Vampire Weekend) make this indie pop song an enjoyable listen.
