Sweet ‘n sorrow Canadian indie artist Hannah Georgas blends acoustics and electronics for a sound thats a la The XX but is slightly brighter. 

Ben Howard … Old Pine … 2012

Quietly brilliant acoustic music in the vein of Damien Rice or Nick Drake, with a little Jose Gonzalez picking thrown in. He mumbled like Bon Iver but the soaring, brilliant harmonies are all his own. Devour this EP then go find his already re-cased full length!

Damien Jurado … Maraqopa … 2012

This album sounds like a less ancient Neil Young. Lots of focus on guitars, mostly strummed rhythms but with the occasional psychedelic solo freak out.

Rachel Sermanni … Black Currents … 2012

20-year-old Scottish singer Rachel Sermanni finger-picks and singers her heart out on this album. Really great.

Olof Arnalds … Olof Sings … 2011

Some covers from Olof. It’s true her voice is full of spring water chasteness. Pure, beautiful, chaste.
