Galkin – In October

A laid back, home movie feel dominates this video for “In October” from Galkin. The footage is of him and his wife on their visit to see her family in Egypt. The song is from the album Clear Customs.

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.
