Is a little band with some mighty big sound, Pree hails from Washinton DC and they are really quite fantastic. They create warm, rich organic folk melodies accompanied by May Tabol’s gorgeous vocals… It is so very lovely. At first I thought it was Thao Nguyen because Tabol sounds strikingly similar… Thao has much more of a pop vibe though than that of Pree, which I actually find to like a bit more because I find their music to be comforting.

p.s. Just in case I was not clear… I highly recommend this EP ;-)

    Wayne, I am so happy to hear this, all 5 tracks are wonderful but some of my favs are the above, Lack of Flight and Speak Warmly. :-)

    Marcy, yeah for hype machine goodness. Thanks to you! :-) I think you will totally love Pree.

    hmmmm, I’ve tried to give this a chance, honestly! DC of the Waiting Room has played a bit of Pree as well. But, (and this sounds ridiculous) the vocals remind me of Samantha Crain a bit too much, and nevermind who came first, there’s only room in my head for one and Sam’s it. Isn’t that awful!?! I’m ashamed of myself!

    But, sometimes you just can’t force these things, ya know? :)
    oh hey, thanks for the linkage, I’ve no idea why we’ve never crossed paths really, I was presently surprised to find you tonight :) xoxo

    Hey Tart! I totally understand, you can’t force it indeed. Samantha Crain is lovely in every way as well. I still am loving Pree’s sound and I am excited to see how they grow.

    Thanks for stopping by and I am excited for our new found friendship. :-)
