Seattle Folk-Pop: The Horde and the Harem

Five piece folk-pop band The Horde and the Harem’s latest album “A Long Midwinter” lives up to the exact opposite of its name. A compilation of heartfelt melodies and whimsical harmonies, the album is cheerful and lighthearted enough to cure seasonal defective disorder. No upcoming shows to speak of this month, so your winter blues will have to be satisfied with streaming their music online, which might be even better because you don’t have to leave the warmth of your home. -Lucy Sherman

Seattle Alternative Folk: King Friday

Folk music has evolved over the past few years, particularly with the emergence of the indie scene, but it’s refreshing to find a band keeps to it’s roots. Seattle’s King Friday occasionally features a piano in their songs, but that’s as far as they stray in terms of instrumentation from their straightforward acoustic guitar fueled folk pop. Joe Bolton, Matthew Sweeney, and Alex Folkerth use this simplicity of sound to showcase their engaging lyrics, vocal dynamics, and harmonization. Their three albums, including their latest “Let Him at Cake (Songs for Birds)” are available for download here.-Lucy Sherman

Song Sparrow Research at Cafe Racer 12/29

Playfully incorporating elements of jazz, folk, classical, rock, and pop, Seattle's Song Sparrow Research achieves harmonic unity through subtlety. Their use of guitars, cello, upright bass, electric bass, synth, glockenspiel, various percussion instruments, and vocals mixes electric with acoustic for a dreamy indie-pop quality. Though this band tackles many different elements and noises, their music is anything but cluttered, each instrument calculated into the song to harmonize with the rest. Song Sparrow Research has their newest, self titled album available online for purchase both digitally and on 12" vinyl. You can catch their next show in Seattle at Cafe Racer on December 29th. -Lucy Sherman
