Ramon and Jessica

Add Date: February 28 

Artist: Ramon and Jessica 

Album: Fly South 

Label: Porto Franco 

Genre: Indie pop, folk pop 

Comments: The duo Ramon and Jessica make stripped-down, cutesy indie pop--the frequent use of toy piano and ukulele make it impossible to avoid that description--that will bring to mind The Moldy Peaches, The Boy Least Likely To or even Kings of Convenience. These are well-crafted tunes--Dina Maccabee (Jessica?) has studied classical viola and has contributed to recent works by Thao & Mirah and Feist--with strings and horns providing nice accents for the vocal-driven compositions on Fly South.

Spin tracks 1, 11, 6 and 8.
