Tuesday Double Feature: The Pierces "Sticks & Stones" & The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band "Devils Look Like Angels"

With the spirit of Halloween still in the air, this weeks Tuesday Double Feature is a little on the fun and creepy side. Enjoy, and I hope you had a chance to vote, cause there's nothing scarier than politics.

The Pierces - "Sticks & Stones"



This sister duo has the rich sound of the 70's coursing through their music. Somehow seeming to have mixed the class and country of June Carter Cash with the powerful rock to early Heart, The Pierces have revived the bold power of the era without the cheesiness of nostalgia. Having toured this last year with Coldplay this band is sure to be household name in no time.

The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band - "Devils Look Like Angels"



Heralding from southern Indiana, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band plays a wonderfully rough delta style blues tinged with a spry hillbilly accent. Their latest album Between the Ditches is ripe with the lovely gravel vocals and the kind of crossroad blues that will make a honest man sin. We've been lucky to have the band swing through Portland twice in the past few months and I hope that trend continues.
