It’s no secret that we’re fans of Portland’s Mama Bird Recordings. They’ve released a couple of incredible albums from Luka Kuplowsky and Skyway Man earlier this month, and now we have a new single from singer-songwriter Johanna Samuels we can’t get enough of. Now, it’s time for you to take a listen.

LOMA is the work of Emily Cross, Dan Duszynski and Shearwater‘s Jonathan Meiburg. Their latest album, Don’t Shy Away, was recently released on Sub Pop Records.

It’s been over 10 years since Arcade Fire released their groundbreaking third album The Suburbs, and as far as we’re concerned, the record is still as relevant as ever.
