This Sunday (8/19), I'll be introducing the 99X Sunday School Indie-Folk Spotlight. Once a week, we'll ditch the synths, dancey 4/4 drums and reverbed-out vocals to check out something a bit more organic. Bands like Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and Of Monsters and Men have, in recent years, moved off of festival side stages and into the spotlight, filling the biggest venues in town.
This genre has plenty to offer, so to get things started, here's a playlist featuring some heavy hitters and some lesser-known gems.
DRY THE RIVER - No Rest
BUXTON - Boy of Nine
ADMIRAL FALLOW - The Paper Trench
LISSIE - When I'm Alone
WOVENHAND - Dirty Blue
FATHER JOHN MISTY - Nancy From Now On
EDWARD SHARPE & THE MAGNETIC ZEROS - Man on Fire
THE HEAD AND THE HEART - Down in the Valley
LOCAL NATIVES - Wide Eyes
