MP3 At 3PM: Wiretree

wiretree6564With sophomore album Luck, Wiretree has fused inventive indie-pop instrumentals with soulful, retro-rock vocals. “Satellite Song” is a composite of electro-’80s pop, Jeff Buckley folk and the poetic spirit of Simon & Garfunkel. The Austin, Texas, band’s draw of contrasting influences has veered far away from the clutter of disjointed sounds that could so easily have resulted and instead has been able to create music that is effortlessly cohesive and somehow just makes sense. And here’s a bonus mp3 for “Back In Town.”
