It's been a while since I've featured something sweet and fragile, so it may be a nice time to spotlight Beatbeat Whisper. They're a duo from California's Bay Area who play looooovely indie folk. Press accounts have thrown around names like Devendra Banhart and Jolie Holland when describing their music, and the comparisons seem appropriate. They remind me a bit of Elephant Parade without being terribly quirky. Very nice acoustic stuff, a gentle blend of New Weird America and '70s singer-songwriter sensibilities.
