It might be because GOOD Magazine is sponsoring a project to make a sleep playlist, or after listening to the new Girl Unit and Meek Mill I was just ready for a change of pace, but this new EP of hushed, acoustic folk is a great fit for right now. Astronaut Husband is a 20 year old from Wisconsin who cites Justin Vernon, Real Estate and Rogue Wave as influences. That man-and-his-guitar feel that all three acts exude, even when they branch out into new sounds, is something that comes through here. It’s the simplest thing you’ll hear today, and for some that probably means the best. “Birds” is the song to check out first, but the whole EP is available for pay-what-you-want.
