Colorado native Mesita aka solo musician James Cooley has been doing his thing for a little while now. So far everything I’ve heard from him has been extremely listenable, catchy but still deep and intriguing. My only regret is not finding his work sooner. His unique style of blending folk, americana, alternative rock and electro/pop is thoroughly captivating at a time that many musicians are putting away their acoustic guitars and creativity in favor of DJ decks and bass. His music features so many melodies and instruments, I can’t imagine how he keeps on top of all it and still puts out music that is excellent. I’d characterize his sound as upbeat Bon Iver meets Bear Mountain. Check out some choice tracks from his new album The Coyote below which currently are available for free and head to his Bandcamp to support the artist and hear even more great music.
