Last night I was reading one of my favourite blogs songs:illinois and stumbled upon the name Chase Weinacht. I had never heard of him before, but I liked him about 23 seconds after I started to listen to the song (A Scene Through) Cellophane.
Chase is a folk-pop singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas and he released his first two solo albums in april. These beauties entitled Here Cinema and Moon Country are available on his bandcamp (and for free, at least when I’m writing this). I downloaded both of these recods last night and I really like them. This guy is very talented and able to create wonderful lo-fi folk songs. Something like the early work of australian pop guru Darren Hanlon at times.

Chase also plays in a band called Marmalakes. The video of the day is this great live version of a song Turquoise Balloons that you can also find from Chase’s solo album Moon Country.
