Or, The Whale

Add Date: September 15

Artist: Or, The Whale

Album: Or, The Whale

Label: Seany

Genre: Country/Rock/Alternative

Comments: First off, sweet Herman Melville reference. Secondly, nice vocal harmonies and standard-but-well-placed guitar riffs. Or, The Whale's self-titled sophmore effort is a solid Americana-esque, rock-but-decently-acoustic production that blends country, acoustic and rock to a delicate but on-point balance. ("Never Coming Out" is amazingly on-point country-folk with gorgeous vocals.) And having played with WLUR favorites Fleet Foxes definitely ups their radio-friendly cred. Will be on my playlist for sure.
