Cold Weather Company are a folk trio from New Jersey. Wide-Eyed is the first taste from their upcoming second album and is a gorgeously plaintive track full of rich vocal harmonies, and backed by a warm, acoustic strum. Fans of Iron & Wine or the Fleet Foxes should certainly listen below.

Check out the stacked chords soaring over distorted… Read More MM Shorts 816: The Inflation Kills
Andy Ferro is the lead guitarist in Nashville’s retro garage outfit Ranch Ghost, but Muirhead is his debut solo album. A wonderful collection of dusty, folk-pop songs which harken back to the golden era of the 1950s and 60s, they have already garnered him comparisons to Syd Barrett, Buddy Holly, and even Sgt.
