The Dutchess and the Duke
The Dutchess and the Duke have issued two CDs worth of spirited songs that run the gamut: punky blues-tinged tunes with vintage Stones swagger, lo-fi emotionally wrought reports on domestic strife, hope-filled looks to the future. Pitchfork pegged their debut, She's The Dutchess, He's The Duke, as an underrated gem: "It's ingredients are few—sexy, gritty male vocals, some sweetly sung co-ed harmonies, nimbly finger-picked acoustic blues guitar, restrained (if any) percussion—but its magic is palpable." The more recent Sunset/Sunrise prompted high praise as "more spacious, ambiguous, and, yes, adult songs … intriguing and affecting." See them here now.
