Eastmountainsouth's Kat Maslich and Peter Adams have put together a lovely album, a hybrid of bluegrass and folk and... well, you just have to hear it. It's very hard to describe: old and new, primitive and modern at the same time. I actually prefer the primitive aspects; some of the Mitchell Froom trademark sound effects are a little over the top for my taste. But the two singers have true, sweet voices, and their hearts and souls are in this music. It's not clear I'd run out to buy a solo album from either of them, because as is the case with many duos whose music I've enjoyed over the years (top of mind: Seals and Crofts, the Indigo Girls), the magic is in the blending of their voices. Favorite cuts: You Dance (which you'll hear on the radio), Rain Come Down, Still Running.
