Friday Five: Same Eyes, Jack Withers, Dan Sutherland, Corey Strong, Zettell
Friday Five is where we celebrate new and recent music by Washtenaw County-associated artists.
This week it's an all Ann Arbor special featuring synths from Same Eyes, Jack Withers, and Dan Sutherland, seasonal music from Corey Strong, and folk from Zettell.
Same Eyes, "New Wage"
The latest single from this Ann Arbor synth-wave duo's debut album, which can be pre-ordered now and will be released on January 22.
Jack Withers, "November Circuit"
This ambient drum 'n' bass track is the first single from the Ann Arbor producer's forthcoming album on the local label none/such, out January 22.
Dan Sutherland, End Gaze
There are eight low-key, quirky tracks on this album, but they're all part of a live 25-minute performance by this Ann Arbor artist playing synths, drums, and sampler at the same time.
Corey Strong, "I’ll Be Home for Christmas"
This Ann Arbor inspirational singer puts his spin on the holiday standard.
The seven acoustic-guitar-and-voice songs here by this Ann Arbor singer-songwriter evoke Townes Van Zandt and Will Oldham.
