Indie-folk quartet Hundred Waters was one of my favorite discoveries of 2014, but they still haven’t gotten the kind of mainstream success I would have predicted. Their music is soothing but not sleepy, complex but not convoluted, the perfect balance between accessible pop and creative experimentation, and I just haven’t been able to get enough of it.
