Maritime comes from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They just released a 2nd album We, The Vehicles, which has lately being playing on my mp3 player quite a lot! The reason is that their songs are simple; plain and straightforward. The recipe is drop dead easy: one slightly-raspy vocal + one acoustic guitar = a soothing, comfortable song. The guitar isn’t overly complex or distracting, and the voice complements this stripped down sound well.
