music: penny & sparrow

i have a new musical crush.
introducing: penny and sparrow
{see their website or find them on facebook or spotify}
{credit to katie lee for the recommendation, who also makes music}

what i love about them:
+the music, first of all
+ the music, second of all and third of all
+ they began as two roommates with a hecka-ton of talent
+ their sound has the folksie/acoustic vibe i live and breathe for
+ the album is clearly named after one of my favorite books, The Hiding Place
+ it's one of those very rare albums where i legitimately like more than 5 songs
+ one of their songs is about les miserables (we know i love that)
+the band name is a biblical reference, and i have to love that too!
+ they're from Texas, they're from Texas, and they're from Texas
(did you know i was born there? the pride is in my blood!)

my most favorite tracks so far:
brothers, la reyna, bones, hereos & monsters, and a woman caught
{listen on spotify if that's your stomping grounds}

not only do i dig penny and sparrow's music, but i love the idea that they are just two random fellas embarking on their musical career, so i actually bought their album to show some support!

go get 'em, boys! xoxo

Dear dear goodness......I do believe these folks might be my new favs. 3 seconds into "Brothers" my foot was tapping and my hips weren't lying. HOLY VOCALS. Seriously, amazing find Katie and Katie.

Most sincerely, Larsypants (who does not have a blog and can't have a legit link)

Larsy! If you have a gmail you can comment with your name. If this reply even finds its way back to you. So I'll probably just tell you via text instead :)

Yessss! I love it when I find new bands, and I feel confident saying this is one you'll be glad you found!

I'm obsessed. Ridiculously obsessed. I need them to follow me around and sing to me constantly.
