Add 'Bad Books' to Your Music Library

Don’t you love it when you stumble upon something completely unexpected, yet extraordinary?

That’s what happened this past Sunday—while double-checking tour dates for The Books, I happened upon indie-folk duo Bad Books, a collaboration between solo artist Kevin Devine and Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull. Reviews of their full-length noted similarities to Elliott Smith and Neutral Milk Hotel, so I bought their album and gave it a listen-through on my way to work. And once more, at work. And then again.

With holiday gatherings around the corner, I see their mellow indie tunes as a perfect compliment to a potluck! Is there an artist or song you recommend adding to a holiday mix?

About Julianne

Julie Since graduating from the "Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too," Julie's aptness for the written word picked up steam like a runaway train. Her journey thus far has been fueled by an adventurous heart, creative mind, and love of breakfast, baking, and bacon. She often makes social situations more awkward than they need to be and loves the word "scrumtrulescent!"
