If You Like: The Staves, Laura Marling

Despite their band name, Joseph is a group made of three sisters from Portland, Oregon. Gentle harmonies, soothing arrangements, and crisp, concise songwriting help this trio stand out in the folk world. Bringing to mind their British equivalent, The Staves, their voices fit together like only siblings' could. The music is almost always relaxing, perfect for a quiet night in the Pacific Northwest, preferably in a wood cabin. The first track on their record, "Cloudline," is a builder, however, and slowly grows into a fiery sing-along jam. Going on a road trip? Experiencing nature? Or just hanging out? This is your new perfect soundtrack.

Their album, Native Dreamer Kin, can be streamed below or downloaded for a suggested donation over at Noisetrade!
