The Watson Twins @ the Music Hall of Williamsburg 7.10.2008
I first heard of the Watson Twins like many from their album with Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiley and the Postal Service fame) which had a alt. country twist on a modern indie star. Last night I had a chance to see them headline a solo show and (after recovering from how gorgeous and friendly they were) I had an opportunity to hear their unique blend of laid back country love. It was a little like hearing 10,000 Maniacs play with Neil Young and Ryan Adams. They have a comfortable laid-back southern rock feel with an almost ethereal warm vocal sound. And did I mention they were gorgeous?
