Music Miscellany for 3/20/2018

In today’s edition we kick things off with the dance-able electronica/pop of The Lagoons on “Escape.” Up next is the atmospheric pop of Andro on “Liar.”  Lava Dolls are seemingly channeling their inner Avett Brothers on “Behind You With Knives.” Wrapping it all up is the Americana rock sounds of Young Valley on “Til I Cross Your Mind.”

Jason Wilbur – Love Me Now

From his latest album Reaction Time here is Jason Wilbur with the video for “Love Me Now.” If you ever get a chance to see Jason live in concert it is well worth your time.

Caitlyn Smith – Tacoma

Caitlyn Smith with Americana tinged music on “Tacoma” from her latest album Starfire which was released on January 19th.

I’m With Her – See You Around

Exciting news today as the band I’m With Her announced the release of their debut album See You Around due on February 16th on Rounder Records. Here is the title track from the album.

I’m With Her combines the musical might of Aoife O’Donovan, Sara Watkins, and Sarah Jarosz. It’s like Voltron, if Voltron was a band and the lions were vocal harmonies.

Jade Jackson – Finish Line

From the critically acclaimed debut album Gilded here is the video for “Finish Line” by Jade Jackson. She is preparing to release a second single, “Bridges,” this coming Friday and will be playing her first show in the UK at the Slaughtered Lamb in London next Monday.
