New Music From The Inbox: David Vest, The Falling Birds, Jay Malinowski & The Deadcoast, Young Rebel Set, Cash+David

By: Juliette Jagger

Artist: David Vest “Freight Train Rolling”
Album: Roadhouse Revelation

This is classic chugging piano blues.

Sounds like: “We roll across the prairie rockin’ from side to side / You know there’s gonna be some shaking going on tonight.”



Artist: The Falling Birds
Native American EP
New York’s The Falling Birds yield a raspy voiced folk-rock sound that’s full of highs and lows, brassy harmonica and the kind of story-esc lyrics that bring to mind someone like Bright Eyes.

Sounds like:  “I’m working, I labor, I can’t afford no houses with great hallways, but always, I try to make you feel loved in the small ways.”



Artist: Jay Malinowski & The Deadcoast “Sloop John B”

This one’s a beauty. Featuring a full, lush horn section, marching band drums, killer harmonies and an amendment written by former Bedouin Soundclash frontman Jay Malinwoski, this rendition of the Beach Boys’ classic has an almost cinematic quality to it and can be found on the band’s latest album Martel, which dropped back in February.

Sounds like: “I feel so broke up, I wana go home.”



Artist: Young Rebel Set “Yesca & The Fear”

There is something menacing about this one from Young Rebel Set which dances somewhere between the weighty cotton-mouthed outlaw country of Johnny Cash and new age indie-folk.

Sounds like: “Yesca I’m begging don’t you come near / Yesca I am not the same man you held so dear / Yesca surely now you can see clear / I am battling with the fear.”



Artist: Cash+David “Pulse”
The latest from London duo Cash+David is a moody synth laden electro-pop gem that builds upon itself, layering everything faint, Eastern influenced vocal flourishes and hallow rhythmic guitars to dance floor beats.

Sounds like: “I’m going to start to run to the sound of the drum when it’s just like a heartbeat.”
