Music Monday: Dawes
I'm a sucker for soulful guitar.
That being said Dawes is pure folk rock. Their album North Hills has an old school rock vibe with a dash of folk. Making it safe for purists who believe rock died in the 70's and hipster kids who enjoy "modern" folk (whatever that means).
I was fortunate enough to stumble upon them at my favorite weekend haunt and they were great. As soon as they finished their set I went over to the merch table and snapped up their album. They were that good and I never buy cds. They recently got some press in Rolling Stone, so hopefully that will be the push you need to at least give one of their songs a listen. It wont disappoint.
