The Harvey Girls
Today's review/writeup will be a short one for various non-music related reasons (I fell asleep after dinner.) I wish I had more time to go into how good this musical duo is, but will instead give you some links to investigate for yourself. While having a central sound that is easily identifiable, just about every track I heard had it's own flavor. They are compared to everyone from Yo La Tengo to Stereolab and today's featured song differs again with a good dose of loose and fuzzy guitar rock. There are plenty of downloadable songs at each of the following links so visit them for sure.
The Harvey Girls are the husband and wife duo of Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke. They started making music together in 2003 and were based in Lawrence, Kansas until the beginning of this summer when they relocated to Portland, Oregon. The debut self titled full length release that this song belongs to is available through Imaginary Albums. The entire thing is free to download and there is not a weak track on it. If you visit The Harvey Girls website there is a bunch more for listening. They have a new album of cover songs that include classics by everyone from Blue Oyster Cult to Bad Brains!! This release is titled Our History is Your Kitsch and is available on the SVC Records label. Finally, there are more songs to get your hands on via The Harvey Girls MySpace. Plenty of good music all around. Enjoy. (as usual...no bandwidth was taken from the artist's site!!)
