CataldoIn Now and Then

Great backbeat, great horns, great feel. Actually, this whole album is really, really good. Check out the entirety of Gilded Oldies over at Cataldo's soundcloud. Really sensing a Ben Gibbard influence here, but that could be just that they’re both from Washington.

Ocean CallingFar West

Somehow it can be so easy to miss the mark with these dreamy, vocal-driven, synthspirational (cool new term I just made up) projects - which is why when I hear it done so well, I think it deserves a double portion of praise. This is the kind of music I want playing through my headphones while I’m sitting on a bus in another country on a rainy day. Desert Sky Scarlet, the only other track available right now, hits the same spot.

Find Sophie over at bandcamp or soundcloud and lend her your support. This is great stuff.
