Sitting in a 90s model passenger van banging on pots and pans and a beat up old 6-string is about as folk as folk gets… and Shovels and Rope pull it off with style. The southern duo lets their stripped down sound ring out loud and true on their 2012 album. We dare you to try and not sing along to Lay Low or Birmingham after the third listen.
