Artist: Letters to the Moon Song: "Shoplifter"
I've previously expressed my skepticism about too-cute boy-girl duos (see: Matt & Kim), but Ryan Eilbeck and Lisa Dorazewski slayed me within five seconds of this "Pink Couch Session," recorded during a tour stop in Brooklyn. Eilbeck (of local DIY kings Delay) strums simple but effective acoustic chords as he and Dorazewski trade one-liners set to marvelous melodies. In the three years they've been playing together, they've clearly gotten good at weaving their voices in and out to maximum effect, and compared to other clips I've seen, the seated vibe is a good fit for them. Saturday they'll be playing under a bridge on campus alongside Saintseneca and I Woke Up, I Did the Same Thing — as solid a lineup of unplugged house-show bands as you'll find.
