Gold Leaves makes more of that mellow, golden-glowed folk rock that pervades Seattle like Starbucks franchises. One can grow blasé about this sound (I sure have), but this Gold Leaves fella, Grant Olsen (ex-Arthur & Yu), writes songs in this mode with slightly more craftiness and subtlety than most in the crowded field; "Endless Dope" is especially lovely. The Ornaments, his 2011 full-length on Hardly Art, strikes a resonant chord of nonchalant down-heartedness à la the immortal Lee Hazlewood. In a similar vein, San Francisco Sub Pop fixtures Vetiver amble and drawl like they have more time to do exactly what they want than you do. Andy Cabic and his crew really know folk-rock history, and they emulate the music's greats with exquisite aptitude and care. DAVE SEGAL
