Papooz – Night Sketches – indie rock
This new album by indie rock duo Papooz, is a great mellow new find to add to your music collection. The upbeat arrangement which is reminiscent of Supertramp, and has smooth breathy vocals which add a certain unique quality that only this duo could provide. My personal favorite is “Good for Nothing” which is somewhere in-between soft rock and something coming out of the indie-lofi scene. The clear understanding of production and space by these two is something to be heralded and adds so much to what may fall flat if left in the hands of lesser artists. Papooz is blowing up all over and becoming a fast favorite so give them a listen below and check out their new album Night Sketches!
Mapache – Life On Fire [single] – folk rock
This folk rock duo Mapache just released their newest single “Life On Fire”, and these two take you back to a time where 8 track was king, denim on denim, and long hair was the style. This ambitious duo with a throw back sound bring the best of the 70s folk rock movement into the modern age. Though their sound may be from forty years ago but the lyrics certainly reflect the modern age, and don’t spare any gory details. The warmth of this track is perfect to keep you company all winter long, and is a great song overall! This track is light and fun, with a Allman Brothers-esque vocal style that is sure to have you singing along! Give “Life On Fire”by Mapache a listen below!
