Wake Owl, Mimicking Birds
It's no wonder the music of Wake Owl's Colyn Cameron has an earthy quality to it: He studied organic agriculture before turning to music. His debut album, The Private World of Paradise, offers a bumper crop of rich, reverb-laden folk-rock, given extra pop gloss by producer Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen). Fans of Lord Huron, POP ETC and other folkies with a dream-pop bent will love Cameron's quietly offbeat tunes. Opener Mimicking Birds take a similar palette in a darker direction, using their echoing guitars to underscore the wistfulness in singer-songwriter Nate Lacy's sleepy vocals. Their latest album, Eons, just released on Glacial Pace Records, is a beautifully barren winter landscape of a record, full of songs that invite further exploration even as they send a shiver down your back.
