The Doldrums

If 21-year-old UW student Tom Eddy has a claim to fame yet, it’s that he’s the perfectly-pitched vocalist heard on the Beat Connection tracks “In The Water” and “Silver Screen.” Eddy, however, is not a member of Beat Connection and doesn’t even particularly like electronic music. Instead, he puts his lovely voice to work via his solo work (he recently released an EP called The Art of Escaping) and his soulful folk band, The Doldrums. The Doldrums will also release an EP sometime this summer; their tunes are lax and easygoing affairs that sound remarkably natural and composed. Eddy is a preternaturally talented songwriter, and enough can’t really be said about his sublime voice—it conjures up images of Jeff Buckley singing with a choir of heavenly angels. With Yoya, Stereo Sons, Greenhorse. ERIN K. THOMPSON
