Simone And Girlfunkle : Blow Into The Wind
Simone and Girlfunkle is so awful it verges on genius. It’s hard to know what the seven members of this sweet folk ensemble were thinking when they took that godforsaken pun for a name, but I’m trying not to let it get to me. Their music, similar to The Head and The Heart or Angus and Julia Stone, is all lilting harmonies and hearty rhythms, with sweet but dynamic arrangements leading to a big, trembling chorus. Very clever, very lovely. Very bad choice for a band name.
