Noughties #77: Wildbirds & Peacedrums "The Snake" (Caprice/Leaf, 2008)

Wildbirds & Peacedrums are Gothenburg's husband and wife duo, Mariam Wallentin on vocals and Andreas Werliin on percussion. With only these two elements to their sound, their music is naturally sparse, earthy, tribal, and the focus becomes getting the most out of each voice - which is compelling. The Snake is their second album, and they do seem to be an act that is just beginning to fulfil their full potential, so I am excited about what they still have to offer.

Highlights: & peacedrums - there is no light & peacedrums - my heart & peacedrums - places (live)
