Persona   

I stumbled upon these guys (this guy?) a few months ago via NPR First Listen. The new CD is "Darling Arithmetic," and it is fabulous, acoustic-driven folkie type stuff. Great melodies, passion with restraint, Bon Iver-ish perhaps.

I stumbled across a YouTube video of an acoustic "Everything I am is Yours," which just had the lead singer on acoustic with a - gasp - harpist(!) - again, lush. Beautiful. It made sense.

What didn't make sense to me was the discovery of some of their older tunes, which rock, and even sound a bit like the Black Keys.("Occupy Your Mind.")

I'm going to have to fully check this band out - I'm loving everything I've heard from them so far. Any fans here?
