[caption id="attachment_2809" align="alignnone" width="385" caption="Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles (Family Records)"][/caption] Brooklyn-based trio [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pearl and the Beard[/lastfm] comprised of Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles create a pleasing set of songs, each with elements of soulful gospel, indie-pop and hints of vintage swing music. Cabaret fans will approve, as this is the kind of band that could open for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Devotchka [/lastfm] or [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Amanda Palmer[/lastfm] and leave you lost in its simple, easily accessible beauty. Listen/download to "Sweetness" from their upcoming album Killing the Darlings. It's alive from start to finish.
