Tom Waits has a very unique voice. As soon as you hear its coarse, gravelly tones, you know it’s him. So, I’m streaming Indie 88, as I have been this past month, and I hear this guy that sounds like Tom Waits. But it’s not Tom Waits. Turns out, it’s this Canadian band called July Talk. The guy isn’t Tom Waits, but the Tom Waits-ish sound keeps me coming back. The girl isn’t Tom Waits either, but I think that’s pretty obvious.
