new discoveries

Willy Mason: 24 year-old folk singer/songwriter from Martha's Vineyard. Though his musical roots are in folk, both of his parents were folk singers, Mason's music has an alternative edge to it. Check out: Fear No Pain and Save Myself.

Noah and the Whale: As their name suggests, this band has a fun, poppy sound reminiscent of children's music and twee. They sound like something you'd hear in a Wes Anderson film (they sort of look like it too). Check out these Brits: 5 Years Time and Shape of My Heart.

Devendra Banhart: By no means new to the scene, Devendra Banhart is a personal new discovery. For perfection listen to: Long Haired Child.
