New Yuck EP Southern Skies - check out two songs

Yuck have released a new EP called Southern Skies. The title track is a quiet, delicate song with a skipping guitar line and subdued vocal. "Another One" features more of the wall-of-guitars and upbeat delivery that the band is known for.

Jesca Hoop at The Horseshoe

I caught Jesca Hoop opening for Shearwater and Death Vessel at The Horseshoe on March 27. She's from Northern California and she's been releasing music since 2004.
I enjoyed her solo performance and songs. Later in the evening, she joined Shearwater on stage for their performance.

Here are some tunes:

"Feast of the Heart"

"Murder of Birds" featuring Guy Garvey of Elbow

"Tulip" with Heartless Bastards' Erika Wennerstrom

"City Bird"

"Born To"

Death Vessel at The Horseshoe

Death Vessel are from Rhode Island. They've been touring with Shearwater and Jesca Hoop and that's who they were playing with when I caught their show at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern on March 27.
I liked them a lot even though on paper, they're not the kind of band I usually appreciate. Hope you take the time to listen to their tunes and see if they don't hit your ears the right way, too.
 "Mercury Dime"

"Ilsa Drown" featuring Jónsi from Sigur Ros

"Circa" from 2008's Nothing Is Precious
