Seattle Indie-Rockers The Cave Singers caught my ear with their uniquely orchestrated folk-jam Swim Club. Released on their third LP No Witch, Swim Club is the perfect sampling of what TCS are all about, and every other track comes highly recommended.
Another Seattle folk band, The Head and the Heart, are relatively new to the independent music scene but have already garnered serious accolades for their Avett-Brothers-esque accessibility and easy-going harmonies. Their latest self-titled album is the perfect summer soundtrack to get lost in. Some immediate standouts are Lost in my Mind, Cats & Dogs, and Coeur D'Alene.
