new music

I discovered a couple of new bands this week

Girlyman – NYC group with close harmonies reminiscent of The Indigo Girls,  genre classified as “Urban Folk”.  I heard a song by them on a coverville podcast singing a Cyndi Lauper cover.  Wikipedia says they are a favorite of the queer community.   click below to listen to a track:

The Greencards – Progressive bluegrass like Nickel Creek, but with a celtic influence. Although comprised of two Australians and an Englishman, they formed in Austin, Texas, and are currently based in Nashville, Tennessee.  This group popped up on a rhapsody channel mix I was listening to.

More videos by The Greencards at CMT.
