How about a quick little EP for the longest day of the week? Hopefully the North Downs can help you get through this huuuuuump day with their chill and relaxing electronic folky style indie-rock. It's difficult to tell exactly how these tracks were put together. There are distinct electronic elements as well as acoustic tones. What is clear, however, is that these 4 short songs are a melting pot of musical goodness. Check out this album if you're looking to put a little hip sway into those summertime burgers that are on the grill. It just so happens that the EP is the perfect listening length for cooking a burger medium rare. (Please do not take my cooking advice… but if you do… give me a bite)
Who are the North Downs? Well, frankly, I have no idea. This is one elusive band! The most insight we could track down is from their Bandcamp page. It seems as though there may be some crossover with the electronic duo Maribou State. It's so cool to see a group take such a private approach to their music making. I've always thought that doing something (business, art, music, etc.) in an anonymous state and having it get recognition is the highest form of praise. Let the output speak for itself if you believe in it! Plus, people just love a little air of mystery.
