new favorite song: indian valley line “on a shelf”
Our friends, the bay area / northwest band Indian Valley Line, are on the cusp of releasing a limited edition version of their debut album and we’ve had the privilege of previewing it. We have been playing it on repeat around here and are often heard singing the songs. Their music is artfully simple, heartfelt and bigger than the sum of its parts. By far, my favorite song is On the Shelf–I adore its popping handclaps, exuberent backing vocals and crowd noise, fiery, percolating guitar and soulful singing.
(We can’t wait to drift off to sleep in a rocking couchette)
