NEW SONG: Wake Owl - "Candy"
We featured Wake Owl (Canadian singer/songwriter Colyn Cameron) previously on WYMA (post here), and we enjoyed his quiet folky approach and expected more of the same when the new single came across. But it's not exactly the same thing, and I like this even better: a sweet, soulful workout with a languid guitar line and some beautiful vocal reverb effects. Check out "Candy" and, like us, eagerly anticipate the upcoming full-length debut The Private World of Paradise (due out March 4 on Vagrant Records).
That is soul music, and it's very well done. The album was produced by Richard Swift, who's responsible for some of my favorite albums recently -- among others, Damien Jurado's wonderful Maraqopa and Foxygen's We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic.
