Something about 3-part harmonies just hits a little different. Especially female 3-part harmonies backed by bold instrumentation and filled up with a complete sonic landscape of strings, percussion, synths and horns. From the outset of the album's first track "Fighter", this latest JOSEPH album takes the listener on a journey of empowerment. The Oregon-based trio has a knack for transporting us to specific moments in all of our lives and lifts those moments up to where you just can't help stomping your feet and dancing around a little bit. Green Eyes is my favorite track of the album where I hope you'll find yourself slamming something along to the beat of the bass drum.
Click here to watch: My favorite performance of Joseph's is actually a cover of a Sufjan Stevens Christmas song, Sister Winter. Which is fitting for a trio of women. Yes, I know it's April but the song and this version does well anytime of the year and will give you chills regardless of the temperature outside. We'll probably have to resurface this one around Christmas time but for now, we hope you can enjoy a little Christmas in April. Not a bad option at all if you're looking for new albums to listen to.
