2011: Top Story: Faces of 2011 – Kasette

Previously featured in our Might Be Giants series, Kasette are school friends Karen Sheridan, Ailbhe Doherty and Sarah McErlean who formed in Vancouver while on a J1 summer. Delivering folky chamber pop – harmonic vocals accompanied by stirring viola, piano and gentle guitar – Kasette hold a unique place in the current Irish music scene – a sweet diversion from the prevalent (and excellent) instrumental math rock and rhythmic alt-pop. A Mixed Tape is a four track collection evoking the softer side of Mountain Man and Joanna Newsom.
