new music from Weinland

With a lot of great folk/acoustic music streaming out of Portland, Oregon these days, it's no surprise that Weinland may have flew under some people's radar. The group put out a fantastic disc in 2008 called La Lamentor which included the stellar songs, "Sick as a Gun" and "God Here I Come" to name a few. Just last week the group put out their newest effort, Breaks in The Sun, which from the pieces that I've had the chance to hear, features more of the same intimate acoustic tunes and heartfelt song writing from frontman John Weinland Shearer.
Take a listen to one of the new discs tracks, 'People Like You" below.
