Nearly a month after Glassetonbury, Vol. 6 began, our tournament has finally reached the championship round. Warsaw, Poland-based indie-folk project Huxley Sun — the brainchild of Argentinian multi-instrumentalist Federico Carpi — will take on Boone, North Carolina rock band Self-Help in this week’s poll. Self-Help, a four-piece that formed at Appalachian State, blends elements of indie-rock, jangle pop, and psychedelic jam to create a sound that’s equal parts familiar and interesting. Meanwhile, Huxley Sun delivers lush arrangements with strings and pianos that fuse together to capture the kind of beauty one might expect out of a band like Novo Amor. This clash of styles should make for one of our more interesting final rounds so far.
The winner of this matchup will earn a featured interview on our front page, a live stream/fan Q&A on our Instagram Live, and more.
Let’s take a look at our bracket one more time:

“Self-Help popped in the listener’s ear with a selfless aim to give a loving goodbye to an important person in her life. It’s the kind of parting one could see having occurred on the rainy patio of a Parisian cafe, conducted with poetic somberness matched by Alison Sudol.” — Mike Farwell

“A nuanced indie-folk song called ‘Waves and Walls’ came out recently from Argentinian-born, Warsaw, Poland-based performer Huxley Sun. With immersive, intimate movement in the background, Sun captured a swelling tension that may draw comparisons to Bon Iver.” — Mike Farwell
