Free For All: Eastern Phoebes

Times are tough out there, and for many of us buying music has become quite an indulgence (albeit a necessary one). Happily, there are some lovely musician folk out there that have offered up some fruits of their labors to the masses, free of charge. Free For All celebrates these wonderful people, and you, dear reader types.

I don't know about y'all, but Long Island is not a place with which I associate dizzyingly cute, folksy twee indiepop. And yet, that's exactly where Eastern Phoebes, purveyors of just such music, calls home. Go figure. The dears of Eastern Phoebes create a sound that is at once pastoral, precious, lovely, early morning marsh stroll invigorating, fireside cozy, and more than a little feisty. Their songs are tinged with the familiarity of an old friend not seen in years, but also retaining an air of being rather special. They're kind enough to have released their Eggplant EP and offered it up to one and all for the special price of free. Do go have a taste, and make sure to go see them live when you can.
