Sounds Of SXSW #15: Cains and Abels

SXSW is upon us once again, my friends, and sadly, for mostly work-related reasons, I won't be there (alas, alack, etc etc). However, there are plenty of good bands that will be in Austin, and I'm going to post little somethin-somethins for y'all to enjoy, whether you're headed down to Texas or not.

There's such loveliness to be found in the musical stylings of Chicago's Cains & Abels. I believe I like to think of them as idyllic urban folksters, with a bit of a dark (and, too, occasionally morose) side ("vultures ate my body up") at times. There's a mellowness to them, an ease. Easy to listen to, but far from easy listening. Highly recommended.
