Sometimes a song just grows on us...and grows..and grows...until we just need to put it on repeat and call it a day. The culprit this time is the incredibly catchy "Fine By Me (Acoustic Sessions)" by Beecher's Fault. Maybe it's the whistle (we're a sucker for a well blown whistle). Give it a listen below and we think you'll know what we mean (but be forewarned, it can be addictive!).
Based in Astoria, New York, Beecher’s Fault is a quartet made up of Ben Taylor and Ken Lamken with Max Maples on drums and Serge Ruccolo on bass. Earlier this month, the group released its newest song "Liquor Store." We think that song captures the potential of a band poised to really make a name for themselves. We love the sweet lead over the sublime background vocals. The catchy rhythm section makes this one playlist and radio-worthy.
Give them a listen. You won't be sorry!
