28. Wino & Conny Ochs - Heavy Kingdom

I know nothing about the backgrounds of these two artists, although that hardly matters. This all acoustic album is one great track after another. The slow, dirty blues of the South is present on this album, with Simon & Garfunkel moments popping up in every track. The vocal harmonies are done very well, and really stick in one's memory more often than not. There's definitely a lot of raw emotion on the record, and I respect and appreciate that. There's honestly not much else to say, or at least for me; if you like blues, acoustic oriented music, and Simon & Garfunkel, listen to this. You won't be disappointed.

I would have put "Dust", my true personal favorite track, but I couldn't find it on YouTube, so I settled for my 2nd favorite.
