Use the double arrows to step through the tracklist.

Paper Beat Scissors aka Tim Crabtree plays beautiful and emotional folk music using his guitar and several other instruments. He recorded his debut EP ‘Flicker’ after moving from Burnley in UK to Halifax, Nova Scotia. The EP features 6 softly sungen songs and can be listened above. Listen closely to not miss out on the interesting background effects like the glockenspiel getting louder and louder at the end of ‘Flicker’.

Dominant Legs

Dominant Legs are a five-piece band from San Francisco. While on their facebook page the band describes their style simply as “POP” I would rather call it “Sing-along Pop” or “Sunshine Rock”. Yeah, that one fits nicely. However, the video you can see above to the first single “Hoop of Love” of their debut “Invitation” (in stores September 27) is by the way their first video ever made! So good luck to these kickstarters.
