BEST VOCAL HARMONIES: The Living Arches

The duo featuring Jensen Kistler (Florida Night Heat) and Micheal Hooker (formerly of Dear Old Liar) produce unadorned (guitar and light keys) anti-folk with charming pop tendencies, the centerpiece of the songwriting their winding boy-girl vocal harmonies, his gentle tenor a lovely foil to her husky dulcet tone. facebook.com/thelivingarchesmusic.
