Take a look at Dawes

We take pause here from Trip's 56-day run to consider Dawes, whose album North Hills has resided firmly atop my personal playlist for several weeks now. No record I've heard in recent years better approximates the feel of The Band's Northern Lights, Southern Cross, one of the finest, warmest, deepest, widest expressions of Americana ever put to tape, and the comparison is apt right down to the Manuel/Danko vocals that permeate the disc. Dawes has just released a video for "When My Time Comes," which (to date) is the album's best-known song, and perhaps my least favorite (though it's still pretty damn good). Enjoy.
