Hey, that rhymed! On a serious tip, though, I'm really digging Cumulus' self-titled EP today. Alexandra Niedzialkowski's uncomplicated acoustic songs are a comforting balance of both lovely and, at times, a little bit sad, and her voice is reminiscent of Frente's Angie Hart... without the Australian accent. (Remember Frente? I loved Frente. Electric flute!)

According to the Cumulus Facebook page (that's where I get all my breaking band news these days) the band recorded a new EP with Erik Walters of the Globes, which'll be out hopefully sometime soon, but for now the 2010 EP and a handful of demos up for grabs on Bandcamp.

Cumulus plays the Comet on Friday, February 3rd, with the Pica Beats and the Soft Hills.
