MP3s: Acoustic, pt. 2

September 24, 2015

Acoustic, pt. 2

1. “Say You Won’t Forget” – Lindsey Saunders. Here’s a smoky, sultry, classy-nightclub acoustic ballad that very nearly makes the lights dim of its own accord.

2. “Got You Well” – Gabrielle Papillon. Tense, ominous folk led by Papillon’s alto, thumping percussion, and occasional blasts of distorted guitar.

3. “Iris Lullaby” – Kara Kesselring & Sugarcreek Road. Who can resist a sweet, kind country lullaby?

4. “Love Everyone” – Virginia Sook. Delicate, staccato, homespun folk with an emphasis on the gentle vocals.

5. “Fade Into You” – Brett Borovic. This Mazzy Star cover includes wintry accompanying images, which fits with the stark folk reimagining of the tune.

6. “The Rope” – Bitter’s Kiss. The ability to create drama through a vocal performance without getting bombastic is a rare skill that Chloe Baker possesses.

7. “Reckless With Your Memories” – My Dead Air. A light, airy West Coast vibe permeates this quiet indie-pop tune.
