Thomas Comerford
"II
"
mp3

Thomas Comerford has spent the last three years preparing for his second solo album, II, the follow up 2011's Archive + Spiral. The result is a thoughtful, introspective album filled folk and western sounds and themes. Most of the eight tracks are built from acoustic guitar and deep, rich vocals. The sound and style could be compared to Mike Johnson. Several tracks, "Silt and Dust", "Chrysalis", "Prefer Not To", and others, then build with twang and organic instrumentation into small southern symphonies. This is bedroom meets barroom but at times it swells into larger realms. This is most apparent in "Done and Done" with its lush full band sound. II will be released by Strange Weather Records on June 10th.

Villa Coola is the new project of Gehring Miller (The Welcome). With The Welcome recently announcing that are "taking a break for the foreseeable future" it seems Miller needs a new outlet for his talent. This is a shift from the sound of The Welcome into a more of an Alt-Folk, lo-fi sound. Miller released his first batch of recording via soundcloud last week. You can stream/download the entire EP here.

You can catch Villa Coola at Beat Kitchen on Aug. 10th with Mike Petruccelli, Jason Swearingen, Hi Ho, and Gar Clemens.
