 Recommended if you like:  
The Magnetic Fields, Memory Tapes, Small Black

Singer/songwriter Damian has recently release a new album titled Earnest Kid. The 12-track record is an electronic folk-pop record with a focus on the artist’s deadpan lyrical delivery and serene electronic melodies.The album stands in contrast to Damian’s electric guitar fitted previous album, On the Verge, which was released last April, and the full band instrumentation of the lo-fi indie-folk on 2014’s You Don’t Need It. 

Highlights from Earnest Kid include the tranquil title track, upbeat instrumental track “Kickshift Poolside,” and the moody minimal pop track “We’ll Be Ready.” Earnest Kid is available for free digital download on Bandcamp.
