Indie folk artist red steppes have a new album out today via Native Cat Recordings. The sophomore release, Arcs, is the fruit of a series of displacements, disturbances, and reorientations. Stylistically diverse, the album delivers minimalist guitar pop, mathy folk, and even a Peter Gabriel-tinged meditation on loss, finding equilibrium in songwriter Nika Aila States’ intimate vocals. Album cut “A Careful Garden” is featured today in NPR' New Music Friday playlist on Apple Music and Spotify! You can order it here.
