Johnny Cash

Herself: Shining Tree EP

Described as an apocalyptic folk lo-fi songwriter, Herself is a personal project for Italy-based musician, Gioele Valenti. With droning vocals, mellow acoustic strumming and a whole lot of melancholia, the Shining Tree EP is perfect for those who love their music dark and gritty. Much like listening to an indie folk version of Johnny Cash, the compilation features 4-tracks that revolve around a quiet tension. The tracks for the compilation were recorded in part from the singer's home as well as the studio.

Apache Dropout by Apache Dropout (Promo EP)

Carrying the torch of indie pop rock, Apache Dropout adds some extra cool retro vibe to spice up their personal sound. This six track promo EP sounds like it was unearthed from some 60s traveller's suitcase. Filled with jaunty, The Doors sounding tunes; the album is a great delight to listen to especially if you love retro rock music. Apache Dropout hails from Bloomington, Indiana. The band is made up of Nathan Warrick, Sonny Alexandre and Seth Mahern. Together, they have released several short albums and hopefully there's more to come from this talented trio.
