info 

Subtly distorted electric guitar and gently clicking calabash, and some nifty kamalengoni (hunter’s lute). There’s bar-room blues on, which introduces some agreeably cranky piano. The overall sound is clearly influenced by the fact the brothers spent many of their formative years living on the US East Coast. But although one is reminded of artists as diverse as Jim White, the Carolina Chocolate Drops and Fleetwood Mac – as well as Appalachian mountain music and Malian blues – the brothers’ songs are sufficiently idiosyncratic to transcend all of these influences in order to assert their own identity.
