[Folking Amazing] Opus Orange x Emy Reynolds – If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out

If You Want To Sing Out Sing Out

If there’s one thing this blogger loves, it’s a great cover. If there’s one thing this blogger loves even more, it’s a folk cover. In a collaborative effort between Santa Monica folk rockers Opus Orange and Ojai based Emy Reynolds, we’re offered up a lovely cover of Cat Steven’s “If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out.”

The original sing along nature of the song is maintained in this campfire appropriate interpretation. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

[Folk Rock] Eli Stone – Cry Evergreen

artworks-000066485483-51e89b-original
This is Eli Stone
Evergreen

In a joyous culmination of vocal harmonies, guitar rhythms, understated drumming and playful lead riffs, Eli Stone has us with our elbows on the table, quietly expecting to hear more. Unfortunately, there’s just this one track. Yes, “Evergreen,” is more than enough to capture any indie rock lover’s ear, but they’ll have to wait with bated breath to hear more.

We’d normally love to tell you more about an artist, providing information like where they’re from, when their album is due out or what inspired their tune, but we have none of that. All we have is head swaying indie rock, and that will have to keep you at bay until we uncover more about this surf rock inspired folk rock group.

[Folk] Oh Hellos – Family Christmas Album

a1280586798_10

It’s that time of year. For the past month we’ve been barraged with the likes of Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Dean Martin and all of the rest of those iconic Christmas crooners. The classics have their place in infamy, solidifying themselves in Christmas lore from the day they were released till the end of time.

While we will always appreciate these, and admittedly just listened to the “A Charlie Brown Christmas” soundtrack, we love when people add in a little modern flare to these timeless tunes. That’s exactly what we’re highlighting today, spreading the Christmas cheer by serving up four new tunes from the Oh Hellos.

With a folk driven interpretation, this Texas based indie outfit have covered some solid holiday songs. The EP, which just dropped a few days ago, features “Begin and Never Cease,” “Silent Night, Holy Night,” “Every Bell on Earth Will Ring,” and “Rejoice! Rejoice!”

Whether you’re sick of the holiday tunes or not, these are well put together, overflowing with twangy folk goodness. So, get in the holiday spirit. Invite some friends or family over for dinner, throw this EP on and have a happy holiday.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, ninjas. We wish you and your families good health, wellness and joy.
