I’m not saying that these songs will be on the list for song of the year, but they are on my personal rotation from time to time, the idea of my blog is to give you some of my favorite artists making new music right now. Give them a chance, give them a listen go see them live.

This track is legitimately on my 2018 song of the year list. It will probably still be there in December. It’s a harmonic, moving song with powerful lyrics. This is what music should be, in my opinion. I can’t wait to hear these guys live some day.

Darlingside (Don Mitchell, Auyon Mukharji, Harris Paseltiner, and David Senft) are a Massachusetts-based ensemble whose sound is an eclectic blend of 60s folk, clever wry wit, classical arrangements, soaring harmonies, and a modern indie-rock sensibility. The four vocalists and multi-instrumentalists construct every piece collaboratively, pooling ideas so that each song bears the imprint of four different writing voices. Playful vocal permutations swing from four-part unison to CSNY-inspired group harmonies, underpinned by rich, carefully crafted soundscapes. The final product threads the collective memory of the four songwriters, nodding to the music of their parents’ generation while establishing a sound that is all their own.

The band released their second studio album, Birds Say,2015.
