Submission Of The Week - River Whyless

This week, our finest submission comes from River Whyless, a Baroque-folk group from Asheville, North Carolina. Their debut album, A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door, was released in January, and is very reminiscent of Fleet Foxes, especially on the standout track "Stone". Imagine Robin Pecknold's songwriting, mix in some male/female harmonies, add a dash of The Head and the Heart, and there you have it. After playing at SXSW earlier this year, the group embarked on a nationwide tour, and luckily for their fans, they're doing it again. You can see their tour dates after the jump. As can be seen in a beautiful video below, the lead vocalists' voices are as beautiful in an empty field as they are on the record. Enjoy!
