Week 8: Seryn – Paths

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.

Week 6: Swing Republic – Truckin’

I must confess that I had a hard time finding something that really grabbed me this week. However, when I finally stumbled upon something it turned out to be pretty great! Before finding Swing Republic I hadn’t even heard of the genre electro swing before, but I guess most people haven’t. This duo from Denmark really put a smile on my lips with their fun and modern interpretations of some good swing music.

For some reason this track was only available on Rdio, so no Spotify this week.
