On Storie Grubb's latest offering, "Milky Way," vocalist and guitarist Sean Kelly lays down three-and-a-half minutes of serene indie folk. While the genre has been approaching ubiquity for quite some time now, there's an earnest sincerity in Kelly's songwriting that strips away much of the ironic hipster pretense that has come to definite the genre in recent years. Consisting of little more than a lone lead vocal, acoustic guitar, and some shaker to round out the rhythm section, the bridge section nonetheless features a beautiful solo that I suspect is either of the ukulele or mandolin variety. Top points for bang-on execution, providing the perfect ending to an excellent song.
