Southern California band Greater Pacific treats us with a few shows this month, stopping off at hipster haven (and we mean that in a good way) the Pike in Long Beach. The sleepy alt-country group keeps the beat slow and the twang strong (dig the pedal steel guitar), and vocalist Kyle Kersten's soothing croon is more whisper than howl. With their first full length album released in September, Incandescent on Yer Bird Records, Greater Pacific is the very embodiment of sweet Americana folk. Check them out this week and maybe discover a new favorite lullaby.
