The second album from the folk rock band Seryn, Shadow Shows, has a lot of strong tracks, but this one instantly became my favorite. I had never heard of this band before, and their energy and delivery really grabbed me. This track has a lot of strong points, from the instrumentation with a prominent banjo to the vocals delivered by a male and female singer in great harmony. There are also some less expected layers of sound with I think elevates this track further.
I never intended to start the year of this relaxed, but what am I to do when two very talented songwriters release two great albums in a similar style in the first two weeks? The new album by Joshua Radin titled Onward and Sideways is a real treat and has a number of really great tracks. The track I chose is a duet with Sheryl Crow, and I just can’t stop listening to it over and over.
