David Lowery

Add Date: January 25 

Artist: David Lowery 

Album: The Palace Guards 

Label: 429

Genre: Folk, rock, psychedelic 

Comments: ChartAttack aptly calls David Lowery's new album "stylistically diverse... it wanders from folk to psychedelic rock and back" again. There are also clear influences from '70s and '80s pop groups tossed around the album, found in Lowery's heavy use of reverb, synths, and ginormous-sounding drums. Lowery's voice isn't the most polished out there, but he sings with a full and warm tone while carrying on decent melodies. If you're interested in hearing a fusion between folk and psychedelic tunes, check this album out. Start with 1, 2 and 5.
