4.0 excellentJared Floryan | August 12th 16

Till death do us part; till we cease the concept of likability; till someone figures out how to do the electric slide atop Xanadu 2.0. Yeah, what I'm saying really isn't leading up to anything super vital, so let me boil it all down by mentioning how classy Arc Iris sounds. Based in Providence, Rhode Island, Arc Iris are an American unit whom I'm certainly expecting greater things from come subsequent recordings. Packed with 11 songs, the band's self-titled debut release is sweet from a production standpoint, well-crafted in terms of both songwriting and instrumentation, and is generally enjoyable enough to sit through with nary a problem. Though mainly a folk record, this outfit's first album also boasts jazz and indie flavors without going too overboard or artificial with the stylistic influences it tends to carry. When I'm not liking this for how on point a lot of the tracks are in terms of composition, I'm hearing it for Jocie Adams' unwavering vocals alone. Whether you're just getting into folk music or otherwise, this ought to be your kind of thing. Thanks, Pleb!

I remember listening to Whiskey Man before the album was released, then completely forgetting about it. Shame on me, this is


4.0 excellentJames G | August 29th 14

Spacious, expansive and downright beautiful. Folk newcomers, Arc Iris, have managed to craft one of the most beautiful records of 2014 with their debut S/T record.

@Feeding Bugger off, check for yourself.
