Vagabonds — Grand Rapids, Mich.


This five-song body of work from the Grand Rapids-based group wraps up gravelly, punk rock vocals around acoustic strumming and melodic verses and choruses. It’s almost a Jekyll and Hyde feeling; which Jake Nellis (vocalist) are you going to get — the docile, sensitive one on tracks like “Anywhere (But Here)” and “Embers,” or the screaming, screeching one on “7:24”? The whole album drips with emotion and spaces out those heavy moments with some really happy-go-lucky pieces of composition. — Jayson Bussa
