The Barr Brothers' eponymous debut album is a terrific addition to this genre. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Brad Barr and drummer Andrew Barr were once two-thirds of indie-rock band the Slip, but they have radically revamped their sound for this project. Joined by harpist/dulcimerist Sarah Page and pump organist Andres Vial, they have created an imaginary past where village musicians play acoustic instruments in the quiet of a parlor but sing with the knowing irony of a modern college classroom.
