This is one of those instances where the cover of an album perfectly embodies what you’re about to hear when you press play. As you’ll see, Harts of Oak‘s EP, Birds & Bees, depicts a deer with tree branches where its head should be. On the tree are some little birdies and flowers, with bees buzzing around it, and it’s all on a background of wood slats.
And it’s perfect, because what you get is a combination of woody folk and sunlit variations of rock. Opening track “Tuesday Morning” is like an autumn nature walk, while the following tune, “Plan B,” is a lazy spring day laying about a field of grass. There are six songs total, and the whole thing is available for “name your price.” If you like things that are good, I suggest you get yourself this.
