Nothing like some nice, down-to-earth acoustic tunes. And you really can’t get more down-to-earth than The Palace Flophouse, a solo act from Chicago, Illinois. The sound quality is pretty lo-fi, but the music itself is really good. It’s very pleasant and catchy. The main draws are the warm acoustic guitar playing and the sincerely tender vocals. Then the occasional xylophone, piano, or miscellaneous percussive instrument comes in and makes the music all the more effective at charming your soul. It goes to show that you don’t have to have the support of a major label or a big-time producer to create excellent music.
