Happy Monday, folks.
Have you heard of The Lone Bellow? If not, you can thank me later for introducing you.
Our friend Ryan Booth (creator of Serialbox Presents), shot this beautiful video of the band last year. Their forthcoming album showed up on NPR's 'First Listen' this morning, and it is GOOD.
Stephen Thompson, the writer at NPR, compares their sound to The Civil Wars (with whom they toured), Glen Hansard, and Mumford & Sons. I think they sound a little bit like The Lumineers, too.
The best news is that you can stream this whole album for free right now, so you don't have to make any investment outside of your time to listen and decide for yourself what you think. Best Monday of the year so far? I'd say so.
