I posted last week about a new band discovery, Her Name Is Calla. Their new album, The Quiet Lamb, is out in the U.S. in November. If you can't wait, you can shell out some euros here and get it flown over an ocean. Until then, download The Heritage & Long Grass EP (found here) for free. Outstanding post-rock. I think you'll love it. Here's the shadow puppetry video for "New England." I LOVE this song, and the creepy video is just right (9 1/2 minute story, don't miss it).
This Tiny Desk Concert with Lower Dens great. Check out their album, Twin-Hand Movement.
