DUTCHESS & THE DUKE: She’s the Dutchess, He’s the Duke: CD

Jul 22, 2008

Though I might be confusing them with another band, the last thing I remember hearing from The Flying Dutchmen was a disc filled with no-holds-barred noise and little else. Expecting the same here, what instead came out of the speakers was surprisingly well written and catchy folk stuff with male and female vocals. Normally this ain’t my cup of tea at all, but these kids are more Dylan than Baez vocal-wise and know how to crank out an interesting tune on acoustic instruments with lyrics that more than hold their own. No small feat these days, that.
