Los Angeles’ Harriet have given us another taste off of their upcoming record, American Appetite, which hits your ears January 29th on Harvest Records. Their newest cut, “Bent,” is much more intimate, confessional sounding track that feels more like you are inside the head of the songwriter. The song cuts deep, as any track of forlorn love song does. I’ve been waiting years for this record (originally kickstarted in 2012) and I’m super excited from everything I’ve heard.

I’m totally in love with what they’ve got going on here.
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ib3lD_VZYU[/youtube] I’ve fallen head over heels for the new tune from Harriet, and it’s video treatment. Their latest single off of their forthcoming album, “It’s Totally Cool, I Wouldn’t Even Worry About It.” The song evokes a strong sense of loneliness, solitude and sorrow and set against the background of a murky strip club. It’s a slow burner for sure, and the video and song is memorably bizarre, on a weird fringe level. This is a great tone for this band, and makes me thirsty for more. Looking forward to their record, and its fantastic title.
[T]he art of the cover song is one all musicians have practiced at some point in their lives, some just stick with us more than others. 2012 was filled with fantastic covers, but after a very *ahem* scientific study, the ones below were last year’s stand outs. In our minds and hearts anyway… 1. Heart of Mine (Bob Dylan) Blake Mills, Danielle Haim and Taylor Goldsmith | Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan [youtube]http://youtu.be/o5qkF18srbI[/youtube] 2. Reason to Believe (Bruce Springsteen) Adam Arcuragi | Long Distance Salvation [bandcamp track=1964161024 bgcol=FFFFFF linkcol=4285BB size=venti] 3. The Weight (The Band) Wilco, Nick…
[A]lex Casnoff’s, Harriet recently released their new single “No Way Out,” a harrowing real story about Casnoff’s experimentation with entirely too much marijuana. It sounds like a campy idea, but the song is far darker than one would suspect based on the subject matter. It’s full of deep, dark piano riffs and Casnoff’s vocals that create a sense of darkness and regret.

Harriet – I Slept With All Your Mothers Glad to see Alex Casnoff (ex-member of Dawes) has landed somewhere. His new band, Harriet, is embarking on the self-release of their debut EP, Tell The Right Story, on January 31, 2012. The first single being “I Slept With All Your Mothers,” which has whispers of Dawes influence (check out the percussion and basslines … When My Time Comes much?) feels big and near cinematic. Its a powerful sound, and barely harnesses Casnoff’s staunch anthemic vocals. It’s exciting news for fans of Casnoff’s and I look forward to the end of the month…
