“Weather pending” seems like an adequate description for the ‘summer’ we are currently enduring; not “storms pending” or “rain on the way”  – that’s much too specific when Mother Nature thinks nothing of letting us have all four seasons in one day. The forecast might as well say, “There will be weather today. All of it.”

Weather Pending aren’t from the UK, they’re from San Francisco, but it’s nice to think that they’re on our side with their cool-as-a-sea-breeze pop melodies that make up their debut album And How!. Available since the tail end of June, as with all self-released albums it will take its time to spread, but consider this an endorsement. On ‘Tide’, a reggae-like melody is flavoured with some acoustic soul and lead singer Janie Oliver’s relaxing, jazz-inspired phrasing. There’s none of the usual formulae at work here. For once the bliss is a natural high. MP3 after the jump.
