Kyle Morton of Typhoon.Their upcoming album White Lighter doesn’t arrive until 8/20 on Roll Call Records, but keep an eye on this band - I’ve been a fan since their debut, but each new track they’ve released since keeps getting better and better (their track “The Honest Truth” from their 2011 A New Kind of House EP is especially fantastic). And if the two singles released so far are any indication, White Lighter is gonna be incredible.
Check out Typhoon’s brand new single “Young Fathers”:
Terry Price of Photo Ops, formerly from Oblio. His debut under the Photo Ops moniker, How to Say Goodbye, dropped a few weeks ago on Gate 5 and has quickly become one of my most played releases of the year.
Check out my favorite track from the album, “You Said You Were”, below and be sure to grab the entire album wherever you buy music. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Jeremy Quentin of Small Houses. His brand new album Exactly Where You Wanted To Be is out TOMORROW (2/26) on the always excellent Yer Bird Records! I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of the album, and it’s been on constant rotation for the past two weeks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Check out “Oh, Hiding Out” below, and be sure to grab the whole album wherever you buy music.
The Sound and The Furry’s Favorites of 2012List will continue over the coming week. This will include favorite albums, EPs, tracks, videos, and my pick for “Band to Watch”. The list will culminate with a 22-track Favorites of 2012 downloadable mix featuring a track from each of the incredibly amazing bands on this list.
Check out my favorite Cobalt track “You Left Your Sweater…” below, and if anyone is gonna be in the Washington DC area Sunday night (8/10), y’all should join me at DC9 for a superfun time with Cobalt & the Hired Guns and Orchard Wall - I’ll be there with my beard on!
