ARTIST: Rescued by better things than man

A sweet young lady I know and quite like recently told me "I think I'm ready to be obsessed with the 1900's". I think she should, and I think you should too.

And we're not talking about the last century either, but the seven piece psychedelic folk-rock group out of Chicago. They play fun and catchy little ditties that call to mind some Belle & Sebastian and Camera Obscura, while keeping up the pop sensibilities that make you wanna shuffle your feet a little bit.

They recorded their first EP before they'd even played a show together, then their first full-length album, Cold and Kind, was released last year - and it should be a part of your music collection. Here's a taste:
