Angus & Julia Stone: Chocolate & Cigarettes (+ Giveaway)

A brother and a sister teaming up in a band can lead to disastrous results. Remember The Carpenters? Tnankfully Angus & Julia Stone steer clear of the middle-of-the-road, taking left and right turns at will. Their Chocolate & Cigarettes EP has six songs and alternates between the two siblings taking the lead.

Giveaway
HCTF has a copy of Chocolate & Cigarettes for the lucky winner who can name at least three bands with a brother and sister in the line-up. The Carpenters don't count.

» Here's the lucky winner

They started out as solo acts, until they realised that the 1 + 1 can add up to a bit more than just two. With partner-in-crime Mitchell Connelly to keep them grounded with his steady drums they ended up with an acoustic album that will get stuck in your player for quite some time.

Chocolate & Cigarettes is released on Capitol Records.
