Today’s Indie: Hey Love / Miner

‘hold up your hands if you hear me / I’m callin’ honey / hold on’

In true San Francisco fashion it is a balmy 57 degree Monday in July. Sigh. Thankfully there is great music to warm us up: LA’s new Americana group, Miner, has the kind of sound that can part the clouds. Hey Love has a wonderful pace to it, starting slow and regret-filled (‘we lost our way / let love astray’) and coursing its way into a singalong hey hey flourish that has you stomping your foot along and rooting for this relationship rut to come to a close… there is such hopefulness in the sound.

The band is a family affair comprised of frontman Justin Miner, his wife, his brother, and their friends, and they self define themselves as ‘indie folkplosion.’ With resemblance to  Edward Sharpe, The Lumineers and The Head and The Heart, they have folkploded into my heart. Their Hey Love EP will debut this August – more please. And happy Monday. #indie / tory
