Everest

Breathing new life into vintage-tinged folk music is a tough sell these days, but Los Angeles' Everest's familiar chordage somehow manages to vibrantly burst from speakers rather than drip out like a slowly exhaled bong rip. Their newest record (Ownerless, recorded with Richard Swift in central Oregon) shows some classic, jammy influences rubbing off from tourmates Neil Young and My Morning Jacket, with the band pushing driving rhythms against spaced out guitar and organ textures, all the while making a point to stay distinctly modern and pop-song concise on their uplifting anthems. With Alberta Cross, Aaron Lee Tasjan. GREGORY FRANKLIN
