Quietly persevering as always, Alexandria resident Meredith Bragg is prepping his newest LP, Nest, for a Kora Records release later this year. Just yesterday, Paste premiered a new video for the song “Birds of North America” from the forthcoming album. It’s a soft, well-textured dose of folk-centric indie rock, and it’s worthy of your time. Nest follows up on Bragg’s exquisite 2008 release, Silver Sonya; based purely on this new single, it looks to be grander in scope, complete with a full band, sweeping strings, and rich harmonies.
