Sam Moss covers the good ones in "Three Oldies"

Last month Boston’s Sam Moss released a simple, modern take on three classic folk/country tunes. The compilation, titled aptly Three Oldies, includes Moss’ cover of 1959’s “I Drew My Ship” by Shirley Collins, a fiddle tune titled “Long John” and “Engine 143” a song performed by Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, The Carter Family, and many others. Moss performs each track with deep sincerity and respect, his soft voice, and clean electric guitar embellishments adding sweet modernism to songs like “Engine 143.” Stream the track below for a satisfying way to start your weekend. - Rene Cobar, photo by Morgan Rose Ford

   

Ben Seretan revives his classic folk songwriting on "Power Zone," plays Union Pool 2.28

The music of Ben Seretan has always been characterized by a wistfully classic energy, and with the release of “Power Zone,” his new single precluding his first LP in four years, it feels like the return of an old friend. This tender energy comes in large part from Seretan’s vox, which waver and glide, hovering just above the track’s nostalgia-inducing slide guitars and roots-rock rhythmic progression. “You will always be hungry for something you can’t hold,” he croons, his voice evocative of Neil Young’s equally ghostlike tenor, fading into the background as sax lines and noodling riffs fill up the space. It’s these various easygoing components that make Seretan’s initial offering off Youth Pastoral indicative of his old soul approach to songwriting, a craft that will spring to life at his record release show on February 28th at Union Pool — until then, stream "Power Zone" below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
