Video: Whistle Peak “Wings Won’t Behave”
One of our first posts of the year was a Band to Watch feature on Louisville’s Whistle Peak. The write-up came in advance of the band’s February release of its sophomore LP Half Asleep Upon Echo Falls. Lead single “Wings Won’t Behave” was the LP’s stand-out track. The song picked up where “Gold Teeth” had left off on the band’s 2008 self-titled debut. It’s another sleepy, pop tune that proves irresistible. Yesterday, Whistle Peak shared the video for “Wings Won’t Behave.” Watch it below and grab your copy of Half Asleep Upon Echo Falls from Karate Body Records.

Video: Sandpaper Dolls “Swallow Them Whole”
Back in September, we featured a fresh track from Louisville’s Sandpaper Dolls. “Swallow Them Whole” is the first single from the band’s self-titled, debut album. Karate Body Records will release the album digitally on November 6. The a capella trio recently released a video for the single, which can be found below.
Fresh Track: Sandpaper Dolls “Swallow Them Whole”
The handful of regular Thought on Tracks readers should be able to detect a pattern in the type of music I promote in this space. I have a weakness for female vocalists, fuzzy garage bands, experimentation and Afrobeat influences – particularly in jazz. Louisville’s Sandpaper Dolls has several of my guilty pleasures rolled into a single package.
The experimental, female A Capella trio recently dropped their debut single “Swallow Them Whole.” Singers Suki Anderson, Amber Estes and Rebecca Dennison weave impeccable vocal lines, looped for added depth and layering. The result is an arrangement similar to fellow female trio Mountain Man with the poly-rhythmic styling of tUnE-yArDs’ Merrill Garbus. “Swallow Them Whole” is the first taste of Sandpaper Dolls’ self-titled debut, due out via Karate Body Records on November 6. The album will be available for pre-order on September 25.
