pretty, whispery folk from a weather

This blog started because friends would ask me what I was listening to so I just started keeping track online. Well, more often than that, I would get psyched about a band and email a bunch of friends about them. I haven’t been exposed to as much new music lately, but I did have an experience reminiscent of that recently with Portland’s A Weather (myspace).

Their whispery and often breathtakingly gorgeous folk reminds me of P:ano’s magnificent debut When It’s Dark and It’s Summer (previously). Both their album Cove and the EP Feather Test are really solid and worth checking out. Their music is reminiscent of a fair amount of music I’ve heard before but that’s not to say it doesn’t stand on it’s own.
