This uplifting collection of 12 acoustic songs provides listeners with nourishing, organically grown music for the soul, capturing joyful moments of life: singing in the sun, splashing in puddles, digging in the dirt, and simply plucking a ukulele or pretending to be a monster. Colorfully packaged with cover art designed by paper cut artist Hannah Viano, Sundrops was produced using solar energy at The Harmonica Pocket’s island studio. Guests include Marcy Marxer and Chris Ballew.
Why we like it: Keeth Monta Apgar and Nala Walla, the duo behind the Harmonica Pocket, make a splash here with their warm, friendly tunes. Their laidback charms recall the easy-going manner of Jack Johnson’s music. Their bright set of songs, which revolves around the Sundrops title, revel in the joy that can be found in sunny or rainy days.
