June McDoom and her band have recorded a live set for WNYC Soundcheck, which writes “Growing up in a Jamaican family in Florida, June McDoom was surrounded by reggae; but she found herself drawn to the sounds of 1960s and 1970s folk. Now based in New York, she has released her debut EP, which surrounds those songs with touches of psychedelia, and arrangements that in their own homespun way seem to echo another sound of the 60s – Phil Spector’s so-called “wall of sound”. In her intimate acoustic musings, June McDoom’s voice rarely rises above a breathy croon, following its own melody regardless of the kaleidoscope of sounds behind her.”
Listen to her performance – featuring three songs from last year’s self-titled debut EP – right here. McDoom has a new EP, With Strings, due next month from Temporary Residence Ltd. Advance single “Emerald River Dance,” a Judee Sill cover, is at radio now.
