Sometimes bands and songs show up in my Inbox, (i give everything a chance), and i lose my breath. This is one of those times….

Or, The Whale play Americana songs of the best variety: which means they incorporate all kinds of typical American fare into their sound: honky-tonk, foot stomp, indie vibes, bluegrass vocals, etc. But enough genre-dropping, give a listen to this song:

Or, The Whale: Rope Don’t Break

It’s like a warm afternoon under a tree.
