"Every Little Now And Then" by Simone White

SW_standing_smSimone White‘s third album Silver Silver (Honest Jon’s) offers more hypnotic tranquility accented by her familiar faint voice as if she was angel whispering secrets while we sleep. But this Hawaiian-born songstress can’t shed her roots and closes her new album with a brief moment of folk: “Every Little Now And Then” is an Ukulele-strung ditty of affectionate pop that finishes just after sinking into your heart.

The cover art for Silver Silver looks like it could be from some garage sale photo-slide. But according to an interview White gave on CMJ, the young girl is herself at age 3, the naked lady is her mom, and the man is a Tongan escapee from Mormons. Whaaa?

"The Cliff" by Emily Jane White

Emily Jane White grew up in the NorCal town of Ft. Bragg which is famous for micro-brews, glass beaches, and perpetual June Gloom. When Emily wasn’t dreaming of escaping to San Francisco or cutting her bangs, she became inspired to write songs of woe folk that cut straight to the heart. The video for her new song “The Cliff” sort of inadvertently gives a likeness to Gotye‘s viral hit video for “Somebody That I Used To Know,” (sans nudity -boo!) but it’s creative enough to stand on its own:

Her third album, aptly titled Ode To Sentience, will be released on June 12 via Antenna Farm Records.
