Pairdown: Holykyle

Pairdown is the collaboration of Pittsburgh-based singer-guitarists David Leicht and Raymond Morin. They have been playing together since 2005, exploring different moods and tunings for the acoustic guitar. Their full-length Holykyle has just been released on Morin's one-man label Sort Of Records. They name British folk bands like Pentangle and The Incredible String Band as their influences. There are hints of Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left in there too.

Holykyle is a gentle album that will appeal to fellow acoustic players and hardcore folk fanatics who still love their vinyl. Leicht and Morin can play together as if they are sharing a twelve-string. They are joined on stage by a bass player and drummer when they play live, but they don't really need them.
