Stream Addy’s Luminous, Heartfelt New EP Temperance

Addy, the musical project of Philly-based Addy Watkins, has a wonderful new EP out today. As Watkins explains in a note to Bandcamp followers, recording for Temperance started in Nashville in the summer of 2021 with Watkins’ co-producer Collin Pastore, known for his work with Lucy Dacus. (Notably, Dacus shot the photo that became the cover art.) It’s full of brisk but tender songs with forceful backbeats tying together gorgeous, delicate arrangements, tracks situated somewhere between folk-rock, alt-country, and indie-pop. It’s a decidedly post-Pinegrove sound, laced with acoustic guitars and pedal steel and conjuring a moody vibe similar to Pennsylvania peers like Slaughter Beach, Dog and Another Michael.
