Now this song isn’t new or recently-released. It’s not by one of those buzzy acts or trending artists. “Middle of June” is just a damn good track by an immensely talented and underrated artist. Seattle singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen has such a cool, coaxing air to him, much like Damien Jurado, the seasoned troubadour also from the Pacific Northwest. Gundersen guides listeners through his folk-tinged music, holding them closely through every strum and hum as though he’s divulging a long-kept secret. His vocals are soothing to the soul, but have just the slightest bit of rasp to give his words that added bit of rawness that resonates deeply. But that’s not to say that his lyrics on their own are without depth; on the contrary, listen carefully to his truthful phrases for tales brimming with emotion.
