LA-based Band The Coals and 'A Happy Animal' [Video]

Cover of The Coals - A Happy Animal
If you haven't taken the time to listen to LA-based country band The Coals, you're missing out.  The band recently released A Happy Animal, an album that is as fun and whimsical as it is often charming, tender, and sweet.  If you don't believe me then I'll reference you over to KPCC's interview ofThe Coals lead singer and main songwriter Jason Mandell where they called the band's new album "inventive, catchy, genuine, and moving."

I had the recent opportunity to see The Coals perform while they were musical guests at the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles.  Check out the following videos from that day, featuring "Lord Lord Lord" (the last song on their A Happy Animal album) and the traditional spiritual "On the Rock Where Moses Stood."

To learn more about The Coals, check out their Website, Facebook, and Twitter.  You can also listen to their latest album on Spotify.
