When seeing Langhorne Slim last week, we were pleasantly surprised by the opener, Matrimony. A five-piece from Charlotte, NC, Matrimony is led by singer/keyboardist Ashlee Hardee Brown and her husband, singer/guitarist James (Jimmy) Brown. Making it a true family band, the two lead vocalists are backed by two of Ashlee's brothers on banjo and bass. Their lively show inspired me to pick up their debut CD, The Storm & The Eye, a conscise 6-track collection of exciting folk-rock with great male-female harmonies. They also have a new single available for free on their bandcamp page. Take a listen and enjoy!
