The debut album from Portland, Ore., four-piece Grand Lake Islands, 2013's Wake of Waking, is something truly special: a folksy, twangy tapestry of mandolin, strings, lap steel, piano, guitar and delicate vocals. And the EP's welcoming intimacy seems to plant the listener in the midst of the music, surrounded by the voices and instrumentation by frontman Erik Emanuelson and the band's three other members. As "a testament to questions, declarations and deliberations" that bubbled up once Emanuelson made the decision to leave his teaching job and the East Coast behind and head west, Wake of Waking is full of melancholy ponderings and hopes for new adventures. Grand Lake Islands will release their debut full-length in January; from the sound of new track "Diamond Eyes," it will surely be one to check out. Fellow Portland-dwellers Snowblind Traveler are also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
