Music in the Gardens: River Whyless
Asheville’s River Whyless has emerged from the mountain city’s bustling scene as one of the state’s most instantly likable bands. Inheriting a sense of rhythmic wonder from Paul Simon and an appreciation of musical warmth from its regional folk predecessors, River Whyless subtly accents its folk-pop songs with modern flourishes that suggest experimental tinkerers such as Animal Collective or Yeasayer. Try to imagine a collaboration between the Triangle’s own Mandolin Orange and Megafaun, or just get lost in these soft harmonies and gently complex arrangements.
