Daily Download: "Pillow," Work Clothes

A hushed folk duet laced with dark strands of psychedelia

Published May 2, 2006 8:01AM (EDT)

Work Clothes is the duo of married couple Lee and Jenny Waters, whose gently folky music, laced with dark strands of psychedelia, invites comparisons to two other spouse bands, Ida and Low, although it's closer to the sweet and occasionally maudlin sincerity of the first than the more affecting slow burn of the second. There are three tracks available for free download from their debut release, "These Are the Shoes We Wear": "Fort Bragg Summers," "Work Clothes," which shows off Lee's creepy falsetto to great effect, and "Pillows," where the two sing a hushed duet over a bed of gossamer guitars.
