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?
