Nashville-based duo A Tale of Two deserve to be embraced by the folk/Americana/ bluegrass crowd. Their solid and well arranged tunes get the benefit of a high level of production skill that captures the roughhewn texture of real, vintage-sounding instruments. Just awesome. We’re talking specifically of the pedal steel guitar on the opener “Blood & Wine,” the deep and fine drums on the rockin’ dark outlaw song “Chicago Lightning,” and especially the accordian that infuses “The Letter,” a gentle, bittersweet number with interesting chords and percussion that we all agree is the duo’s standout tune. Vocal-wise, A Tale of Two is solid, though we prefer the duet harmonies to the leads.
