has always had a warmth in their sound that glows through the honesty of their lyrics. Perhaps its the combination of geographical influences, being LA based, but largely inspired by New Orleans. Their new EP "Rosemary Stretch" features three songs that are no exception to this rule. Even the track "Rosemary Stretch," with its stone-cold lyricism ("You're shit out of luck/ you're never leaving this town"), harbors an unmistakable pleasantness. Maybe it's the way the band's well-defined melodies and alabaster smooth rhythms lace each song. Whatever it is, this EP has some well-cushioned tracks. Listen to them below. If you enjoy them, add them to your library, and be sure to check out our full session video
