Around this time of the year I slowly sink away into folk records that match the brutal weather outside. Occasionally a track comes out that feels like both summer and winter and snaps me out of my mood. Los Angeles' Just An Animal has helped shake me out of my folk haze with their upbeat, yet reflective album Lonely Hunter. The standout track is the opener, "Kamikaze" which waltzes around with a sharply plucked guitar, wave crashing synth, and gentle vocals that shake the song into place. Snow or sun, Just An Animal acts as the perfect backdrop to any season.
