A Band of Bees A Band of Bees - "Who Cares What The Question Is"
A Band of Bees are finally coming to the states all the way from the Isle of Wight in the UK, and we couldn't be more excited! Their last album Free The Bees was full of retro-but-new gems like our favorite "Chicken Payback", and the new album Octopus coming out this spring once again combines that same lighthearted energy with their trademark psychedelic poppy sound.

Thomas Dybdahl Thomas Dybdahl - "Dice"
This Norwegian singer-songwriter creates the same kind of intimate environment as his contemporaries like Damien Rice - while maintaining a real earnestness with his alt-country sound. A little slide guitar, a little wistfulness - sounds dreamy to us.
