Song of the Day 6/26/08: The Dutchess & The Duke - Reservoir Park
We are here to formally announce our love affair with Hardly Art. The Sub Pop offshoot is responsible for the fabulous Arthur & Yu and Le Loup debuts, the latter of which topped our best of 2007 list. With the introduction of The Dutchess and the Duke, they're batting a perfect 3 for 3. Jesse Lortz sounds distinctly Jaggeresque in his vocal timbre, but Dylanesque in his prophetic lyricism; Kimberly Morrison brings a perfect backdrop of warmth to the rough-around-the-edges arrangement. And there's no better time than today to feature this track: they'll be opening for Fleet Foxes tonight in San Francisco, and a couple of betterPropaganda staffers plan on making our way out. It promises to be a stellar show.
