One of Rolling Stone’s “Ten New Artists You Need To Know.” Natalie Prass’s work is flecked with a lushness buttressed by her melancholic instincts for storytelling, rounded out by inventive brass and orchestral gestures, tender and exuberant all at once. The compelling stories behind her songs reveal Prass’ perseverance in nourishing her menagerie of influences into a unique and visionary sound.
Angelica Garcia fashions a musical world that veers between ghostly gorgeous countrified blues and sly swamp Americana. With a childlike whimsy, quirky sense of humor, and dynamic delivery, it could easily soundtrack an apparitions’ ball in some Faulknerian mansion. Upon first listen, it entranced Warner Bros. Records. Recorded by Charlie Peacock [The Civil Wars, Switchfoot] in Nashville, her full-length debut Medicine For Birds is out now.
