Really Good Music

If you like really good music, I suggest downloading the whole album. I don't know what language it is the whole time, but the music is good, it's different.


I love Como te vas

But what language is this! I speak Spanish, French and English and well I don't know what language that song is in.

True Musicians

I recently saw Trails and Ways live and I must say, this group is something special. They are so new to the music scene they had to perform their own sound check in front of, what was at the time, a very small audience. But the second they started to perform, crowds began to gather like moths to a flame. This sound is new, its original, and it's only possible because these four individuals who make up the band are incredible musicians. Each member of the band is pulling double duty, whether that means playing the drums and also singing lead, or going from guitar solo to the synth, each person in this band has chops and I strongly encourage everyone to fall in love with their sound, it's something special.

About Trails and Ways

A self-described "bossa nova dream pop" quartet from Northern California, Trails and Ways bandmembers Emma Oppen (bass, vocals), Keith Brower Brown (vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards), Ian Quirk (drums), and Hannah Van Loon (lead guitar, keyboards) met while studying at UC Berkeley. Invoking names like Beach Fossils, Of Monsters and Men, and Passion Pit, and inspired by Spanish flamenco, Música Popular Brasileira, and sunny Cali indie pop, they issued a debut EP in 2012 called Trilingual (the group sings in English, Spanish, and Portuguese), which featured the regional hit "Mtn Tune." Trails and Ways eventually inked a deal with Seattle indie Barsuk, which put out the quartet's first studio long-player, Pathology, in June 2015. ~ James Christopher Monger
