ON TOUR: Beatbeat Whisper


The Bay Area's Beatbeat Whisper put out one of the prettiest folk records I heard in 2006, and now the duo, comprised of siblings Ayla and Davyd Navero, are embarking on an East Coast/West Coast tour! I strongly recommend checking them out if you live anywhere near where they'll be playing. The instrumentation itself sounds very traditional, but the duo's vocals are more in line with newer artists like Joanna Newsom or Devendra Banhart. More good news: The band's at work on two (yes, TWO) more full-length albums, which'll be completed in spring of 2008!
