The Civil Wars

There is a huge buzz around this duo and they just released their debut, "Barton Hallow," today. They're already No. 1 on iTunes. Critics are drooling over them. PASTE said they're one of the "Best of What's Next" and gave them a nice review here: The Civil Wars: Barton Hollow :: Music :: Reviews :: Paste

Check out "Poison & Wine" and "Barton Hollow." Barton Hollow by The Civil Wars - Download Barton Hollow on iTunes

Nice voices, but I find their music incredibly unexciting.

It's not Radiohead or Flying Lotus or anything, but it's good solid songwriting. I saw them perform "Barton Hollow" on Leno a week or so ago and they totally killed it. I didn't expect it. YouTube - Barton Hollow-The Civil Wars-The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.avi

@taylorswift13: Listening to 'Poison & Wine' by @thecivilwars. You can't push 'repeat' on vinyl so I keep setting the needle back on my record player.
Uhhhh, yeah. I'm going to have to check this band out.

I heard she even bought a T-shirt at their live show. She doesn't just admire them, she's a real fan. I think it's cool when musicians truly get excited about other artists' work like that.

YouTube - "Poison & Wine" | The Civil Wars | OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO [HD]

Haha, yes! Click through the link and read all the comments below.

No one girl should have all that POWER.

Seriously, though. This band is fortunate that she tweeted that shit. They are, no doubt, going to get a lot more recognition and revenue just because she said she's a fan. Scary.

This little duo just debuted at No. 12 on Billboard with their debut album. Not bad.

And here's their take on The Smashing Pumpkins' "Disarm."

Yeah, for the most part. Only a couple songs that jumped out.
