Week 15: Dawes
Little surprise with all of the Mumford & Sons that I’ve been replaying lately that I would be attracted to Dawes who spent some time opening for Mumford. If you listen to the most popular linked above, “When My Time Comes,” you won’t be surprised. Dawes channels the same folk, Americana-inspired mellow harmonies. Most of my favorites are from the original 2009 debut “North Hills” album; but “A Little Bit of Everything” from the later “Nothing is Wrong” album is also pretty great. Intensely jealous of the people at SXSW this week who could catch Dawes pretty much any day of the week starting Tuesday.
