Mp3 Menagerie: Her Name Is Calla, The Happy Hollows, The Mynabirds

Her Name Is Calla – Long Grass (mp3 expired) *

It amazes me that the most talented bands send the most polite, humble little emails asking that I listen to their music. This atmospheric, somber ballad is from Her Name Is Calla’s upcoming full-length album The Quiet Lamb, set for release sometime this Spring. The delicate folk instrumentation is particularly haunting.
