The Good Graces: Close to the Sun

Atlanta, GA indie folk collective The Good Graces has only one permanent member: lead singer and guitarist Kim Ware. For her new album Close to the Sun she called in a few favours from her friends to help her out, but it's first and foremost her vision on dreamy folk rock with an edge.

Ware can switches moods at drop of a beat. She isn't afraid to speak up - the college rock anthem Standing in Line, is perfectly capable of channeling a Johnny Cash meets spaghetti Western (Parts > Sum) can be surprisingly gentle (I Don't Know Where to Start and Cold in California). Recommended if you like Belly, Throwing Muses and Amy Correia.

Close to the Sun will be released on vinyl (500 copies) on October 28 as a collaborative effort by Fort Lowell Records and PotLuck Foundation. Also available as a digital download.
