I recently found this wonderful duo out of the Minneapolis area.  They're sort of rockabilly/old country/vintage rock n roll - some of the best harmonies I've ever heard.  I've not been able to stop listening to their record.

A lot? They sound exactly like the Everly Brothers.  :)  

Oh and that's a good thing.

It ain't easy to lock in like that. Either a natural meeting of voices or the result of hours of hard work ... or both.

These guys are brothers, which explains the harmony.  The entire record is great.  Best new music I've heard in years. 

Side note: I also love the Everlys.

That is awesome.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the record?  What are some of your favorite songs?  I'm partial to "Mississippi" and "Powder Blue" most of all, but they are all great.

Pretty good tune. I like the tasteful use of the tremolo on the guitars.
