RIYL: Beirut, DeVotchKa, Devandra Banhart

Label: Soul Step Records

Cincinatti 5-piece Sylmar have readied up a one-two punch of jazz-laden indie rock grooves to mellow out your Monday malaise and keep you floating on that lazy Sunday trip.  Soul Step Records, also Cincinnati natives, have teamed up with the band to produce the 7″, the second in their ‘Cincinatti Brewers’ series where they release a local craft beer along with an up-and-comer to the music scene.  Can’t argue with that, right?  Beer and vinyl have been best friends for almost a century now.

Fans of Devandra Banhart, DeVotchKa and Beirut’s romantic sweet nothings will love Sylmar’s blend of r&b, dreamy harmonies and acoustic jazz.  I hear a little Local Natives in the vocal arrangements too.

The majority of these 7″s were sold at Soul Step’s release party, but there are a handful left in their online store.  Check out the A-side HERE and listen to the sultry smooth B-side below.  Then, snag one of the last copies of the blue vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.
