is the creation of Belgian musician Gaetan Vandewoude, a folksy band that pumps out intricate harmonies and introspective lyrics with charming ease. There's real feeling in the vocals and music of Isbells that's pretty hard to find in today's musical landscape; easy-listening that never gets boring. Anyone who's a fan of Bon Iver, Rodriguez, or Fleet Foxes oughta spend some real time with these guys.
And today you're in luck: we've got Isbells' new EP, Heading For the Newborn
, streaming here and only here. Heading For The Newborn
is a perfect distillation of everything mentioned above and serves as great preparation for the band's upcoming full-length, Stoalin'
, set to drop in March 2013. This is worth you're time, believe us.
And if you're more of a hard-copy type person, here's a free stream and download of the EP's third track, "Illusion."
