The US acoustic-rock quartet Comstock released the EP These Days on the 30th of December.
The music is layered in curled-blues and southern-folk through which Comstock create songs that have a warming, slightly retrospective feel, in which the listener stretches their limbs and bathe in the soft-light.
Whilst the songs themselves are becalming on the ears, there is much going on inside the compositions as acoustic and electric guitar flow around each other with bass and drum generating the solid structure which creates the space for the vocal to deliver its bewitching presence. Additional instrumentation is deployed within individual pieces as appropriate.
My pick of the release (which is available directly from the Comstock website) being the first of the four and title – These Days.
