Peasant

Peasant writes beautiful, delicate, catchy, folk-pop. Think of songs by The Kinks or Paul Simon or certain songs by The Beatles...from the Peasant bio:

"I created Peasant after hearing a John Lennon song called 'working class hero' and deciding I wasn't doing this for myself. I've been writing songs on the guitar since I was 14 but I only got serious about it last summer. I took a trip around the country in my car and played a bunch of shows and open mics, i saw the world from a million different angles and decided that I had to be a musician, and I had to work hard at it. I am now 20 years old and I live in Doylestown, PA. I spend all the time I can writing songs on my guitar and adding other instruments to them in my make-shift studio. Music is first and foremost a passion of mine that I've felt drawn to since I was 7 or 8 years old, singing to myself in the woods outside my family's home in Bucks County, PA. Naturally, I've been into traditional folk styles, from Guthrie to Dylan, and I definitely love the experimental style of the late Beatles."
You can continue reading more on Peasant's MySpace site. I've selected the two songs by Peasant I like the most to share here on EAR FARM but overall I'm kinda totally partial to "Icy Deep". I can hear the Beatles ("Blackbird"-ish) influence in the guitar on this song but what I adore is just the overall sound and feel of the song. The delicate melancholy and (great) lyrics really resonate with me, in fact I think this song would be perfect for the next Wes Anderson movie. It's a perfectly short song that makes me want to hear it again as soon as it ends and the other song posted here, "Joanna" is just as good (if not better) and stands out with it's sweet vocals and hush-quiet hand claps. You'll be singing along in whispers in no time.

Read what Said the Gramaphone had to say about "Joanna".

Listen:
"Icy Deep"

Hi Peasant,
I was moved after listening to 'Icy Deep'. I am a major fan of the Beatles and John Lennon, and have been playing guitar and piano for almost 20 years (I'm 33 now).

I had a band called the Coldest Apes up until recently (we were together for 10 years) and we played our own stuff after 5 years of doing covers from the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Sex Pistols, Radiohead, Nirvana, Peral Jam and god knows what else.

Our split after so long really came from wanting to do different things. I'm now a self employed business owner working from home, but sometimes when I think of what I can offer this world I think of writing mellow rock ballads and such. I think this is why your song moved me.

I love recording and use my computer as a recording studio (using Cubase) although I don't use it nearly as much as I used to.

I was wondering what sort of responses you get from this blog. Do people appreciate what you are doing. I believe I have a lot to offer but I certainly don't want to be selling it, just allowing people to hear it.

Anyway, I've waffled on

Dean
