Routes & Branches 5/12/12

This week I had the pleasure of having The Shook Twins into the KRVM studio on there way to play a show over at the Axe & Fiddle. The first thing one notices when listening to The Shook Twins is their amazing twin harmony vocals which come from a lifetime of singing together even though they are still in their 20's. Drawing from indie folk to 60's pop The Shook Twins create a unique blend of Americana music that is inspiring and uplifting. I also like their use of old and new technology in creating their sound, Katelyn with an old telephone receiver to give a low tech sound to her vocals and Laurie by using loops and other electronics to give her banjo a beat-boxing effect.  The Shook Twins are making their mark on the west coast music scene.
