Little Sur is a NYC based band that I follow. They have just released their second collection of music entitled You Ran With Me. The record was recorded in NY and in California. There are some found sounds in this recording – notably the sound of the ocean – on the song “The Coast Towards Home”. “The Coast Towards Home” features almost all of the band’s players and extended family of musicians. Banjo, percussion, guitar and towards the end trumpet combine with layered vocals to create a wonderful indie folk soundtrack.
The band has a bunch of video’s from various live shows and internet sessions up on YouTube that will give you a good idea of the band’s live sound. This new EP is available as free download on the band’s Bandcamp page.
