go team Canada

my man and i have been fans of Canadian troubadour Luke Doucet for awhile now. turns out mr. Doucet has a lady love, ms. Melissa McClelland. and she can sing, too. yes, she sure can.

they’ve put their vocal and guitar-playing skills together to make one sweet little album under the name Whitehorse. a whopping eight bucks will get it for you on itunes, and if you have anything resembling a cowboy or a songbird in ya, i highly recommend you make that move.

the eight duet-driven tracks have just the right balance of country grit and bluegrass bittersweetness to keep your feet thumping and your heart yearning. in my opinion, they more than give She & Him a run for their money. and as an added bonus, keep your ears out for a noteworthy Bruce Springsteen cover near the end of the record.

while you and your pocketbook are mulling that over, check out this acoustic performance of their single, “Emerald Isle,” courtesy of CBC Radio 2:
