some good indie, folk rock & acoustic music.
i want something soulful, catchy, soft.
City & Colour?
You might aswell try Neutral Milk Hotel, Surjan Stevens and Iron & Wine as well
"Folk / Indie / Rock"
The Ditty Bops
I may or may not come up with something later.
City & Colour
Oh, and early Bob Dylan.
I'll just throw some examples of my picks in.
http://www.purevolume.com/halos (Listen to Amalgam or Pool Hall first)
Good Old War:
http://www.myspace.com/goodoldwar (Listen to Coney Island, Looking for Shelter, Just Another Day)
http://www.purevolume.com/anthonygreen (Listen to Slowing Down, Devils Song, Stone Hearted Man, Baby Girl)
Love You Moon (Matt Embree of Rx Bandits solo project)
http://www.purevolume.com/loveyoumoon (Last words of Nicholas Berg, Why popstars sell silicone)
Tegan & Sara
http://www.myspace.com/teganandsara (The Con, Back In Your Head, Call it Off, Nineteen)
If you like My Morning Jacket, Bright Eyes or M. Ward, the two main members of the first two and M. Ward formed a supergroup called Monsters of Folk. It's pretty damn badass. I think 3 songs are floating around on the internetz.
Then you have bands already mentioned, like Iron & Wine, early Bob Dylan (Bring It All Back Home > "older" material), Sufjan Stevens, Neutral Milk Hotel, City & Colour...
Then there are people like Townes Van Zandt (country flavored folk), Elliot Smith (not folk, but still fits what you're looking for), Kaki King (female instrumental guitarist, really chill stuff), Vampire Weekend, TV on the Radio, Mew, the Silversun Pickups...
I could go on all day, really. This is the type of music I mainly listen to these days.
Angus and Julia Stone do some pretty cool shit. - http://www.myspace.com/angusandjuliastone
Band of Horses: not all acoustic, but it's definitely souful, catchy, soft.
Attack In Black's last two records are acoustic, check out their first record too, it's all genius.
The Avett Brothers, don't think they were mentioned in here yet.
Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst's "solo" records
Belle And Sebastian
Fences: haven't released a lot, but the stuff that's out is great
Jack Johnson: pretty good, easy listening
Curtains by John Frusciante and his other acoustic stuff, others stuff is also brilliant, though
The Modly Peaches
(More stuff of Plan-It-X Records: Defiance, Ohio / Mischief Brew / Andrew Jackson Jihad / Wingnut Dishwashers Union / ...)
But definitely check out the aforementioned: City And Colour, Tegan and Sara, Sufjan Stevens, Neutral Milk Hotel, Fleet Foxes and Frank Turner.
She & Him
I forgot Chuck Ragan.
How could I forget this band? For my money, it's the best band to debut within the past few years.
People In Planes
Minus The Bear
thanks guys. i'll take my time and go through all the artists listed.
