Noah and the Whale

Noah and the Whale claim themselves to be “a magical band hailing from London, who find inspiration in the films of Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach and sound a little like Neutral Milk Hotel, The Kinks and Belle and Sebastian.” Surprisingly, they’ve summed themselves up perfectly and I won’t mess around with a less apt description, except to say that their latest album, Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down, comes out September 16th and it's a simple, catchy mix of everything a listener could want from a minimalistic British collective. They’ve thankfully moved up from playing in the corners of tiny bars to touring all across Britain, which makes me wish I was a little bit less in Washington, D.C. and a little bit more in London.
