The Other Favorites are an indie folk duo based in Brooklyn, New York, that consists of Joshua Lee Turner and Carson McKee. They are perhaps best known for their performances on YouTube, which have garnered millions of views.
A shared love of traditional bluegrass, folk, and classic rock music underpins their songwriting, which is distinguished by virtuosic guitar work, incisive lyricism, and tight vocal harmony. Their new album, Unamericana, explores a complicated relationship with the American identity.
After meeting at their 8th grade talent show, Turner and McKee began performing together in their former hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. They self-released their first full-length album, Novelty, in 2011, followed by Naysayer in 2018, and Live in London in 2019. Unamericana will be released on November 19th, 2021.
Edwin is an alt-folk band formed by Jacob and Matthew Boll who split their time between Chicago and Los Angeles. Intricate guitar, ethereal instrumentation, pedal steel, light synth, interweaving harmony, and a solid dry beat build the core of Edwin's new album West. This core supports the singers at the center of songs. Jacob and Matthew deliver deep, introspective, and honest lyrics that dig for meaning with voices that are vulnerable yet unwavering.
