Sweet Lights, Sweet Hooks
Philly's Sweet Lights (aka Shai Halperin) dropped us a line a few days back, that we didn't get because we weren't so great about checking our new email accounts. We've since fixed that problem, and luckily have been loving these new tunes. Check out their video above, and their cover of the Wilbury's "Handle with Care." Sweet Lights' self-titled album comes out Oct 1, and is free for the entire day at their bandcamp. Sweet Lights purvey gauzy, nostalgic, acoustic guitar-tinged pop songs, that display a clear songwriting talent and a penchant for writing delicate and memorable hooks. They also have a song titled: "Ballad of Kurt Vile #2" - how great is that?
