Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Afternoon Show host Kevin Cole, is And Keep Us Safe ‘til Morning by Post Harbor from the self-released 2007 album Praenumbra.

Post Harbor - And Keep Us Safe ‘til Morning (MP3)This self-released debut has been seeing some action on both KEXP and other local stations for good reason. A quartet, complete with new post-album drummer, Post Harbor create songs that begin with all the beauty of a Sigur Ros tune only to dial up the percussion and angst, triggering reminders of Sunny Day Real Estate and all of their lo-fi bliss. As with any local band fighting for a record deal or some form of financial freedom, these guys have been hitting up the clubs, mostly 21+ clubs, in hopes of spreading the word. The result has been unanimously positive, a sign that maybe these guys will soon get the attention they deserve. After you’ve checked out the tracks on their MySpace page (definitely not enough), head over to Easy Street Records where the CD is available for purchase. Meanwhile, check out this video of Chani from their February performance at The Crocodile:
