Whitehorse – The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss (Six Shooter Records)

Husband and wife team of Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland are each acclaimed roots-rock artists in their own right. So what happens you pair the two of them up as they have done here? I can’t quite explain it but it is a thing of beauty. Their vocals play off each other with surprising ease, lending an intimate feel to many of these songs. The duo can get down and dirty when it is called for but it is on tracks like the simply beautiful Mismatched Eyes where their talents perhaps shine the brightest.
