I owe this find to Chris at gvb, but felt it deserved a post here since it kind of fits my regular postings. The Finches are Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Aaron Morgan, who both contribute in the singing and guitar work that are The Finches. They released their first EP, Six Songs, in the Summer of 2005 and I'm kicking myself for not knowing about this group earlier. If Joanna Newsom sang softer and less on the edge, this would kinda describe Riggs' beautiful voice. The songs are simple enough and with Riggs' voice intertwining with the acoustic guitar, it makes for a perfect aural experience. Below are two tracks from their EP and one live track from late '05.
.: The Road
.: Daniel's Song
.: The Leviathan Song (live 10/23/05)
