Two Step Slumber are a Portland, Oregan duo who lay claim to “a dark blend of folk rock and Americana.”

With banjoist and singer Jake Russell belting “out vocals in a deep-rooted mournful intensity,” partner and multi-instrumentalist Brent Greiwe “adds the right amount of textures and melodies the bring the songs out of the darkness to grasp for hope.”

So say of Two Step Slumber, who haven’t found it necessary to say much more about themselves (though their MySpace page does take time to leave a rather current list of influences that include 16 Horsepower, Jesse Sykes and Iron & Wine).

We hear all those influences in today’s Free MP3 of the Day, “Hush Tones,” a spooky, ten-yards-past-what-is safe-rumble that also bring to mind Antic Clay, the Willard Grant Conspiracy and a Jim Jarmusch remake of Deliverance.
