New Music Monday
We will see if I can keep up with this, but I am going to try every monday to post a New Music Monday! Hopefully, similar to my past blogs Free Music Friday, New Music Monday will showcase something new I have listened to and (hopefully) some free download for you all. So kicking off New Music Monday is The Civil Wars. A collaboration between Joy Williams and John Paul White, The Civil Wars are in the style of folk duets, often slow and haunting. I would call it country but it lacks any twang. Their voices meld well, rising and falling in a way that made me care less about the lyrics (which are above average, as far as music comes) and sit back and enjoy the atmosphere. Head on over to their myspace page to download a live CD for free... no string attached.
