Episode 40: Darling Cora

A magnificent vocal powerhouse, plucky guitar arrangements and world music rhythms. It’s big, honest and serenely meditative. Darling Cora’s first full-length release Heart Strung Out is an indie-folk record with guts. I dare you not to get chills. Think Grace Slick, Joni Mitchell’s Ladies of the Canyon, and even the free-form rhythms of improvised beat poetry, all set to jazz/blues orchestral foundation. Get in the loop!!!

Episode 32: Clara Engel

Find your spirit guide and take a trip with us for Clara Engel’s most recent relsease Visitors Are Allowed One Kiss. It’s doom folk, “avant-blues hymns” centered on dusty, raw vocals and acoustic guitar. Hauntingly beautiful and meditiative, Engel’s international collaboration builds a dark fairytale of a record. Jess digs into themes of seduction and death’s release, and Dylan explores how depression is perfectly captured in “Once A White Owl.” Heavy but worth it, friends. Get in the loop!
