// sunday music: the civil wars

No real surprises here, especially given the hype that’s been generated around Portland’s The Civil Wars, but having played their album on repeat for the past week (listen to it here) I can tell you it’s worth all the buzz that’s been flying around. Even if their guitarist does look like Johnny Depp. And Jack White.

Pick number one is Poison and Wine, easily one of my favourite songs from the past year:

Next up, a superb live cover of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean:

And finally, latest single Barton Hollow, a nicely bluesy slice of American Gothic.

And that’s your lot!

I’ll see you on Friday.
