The Young Romans don’t play country music, but I do hear some pretty guitar picking on today’s PJOTD, and it resembles early solo Ryan Adams. And that’s basically a surefire way to keep me from switching to the next song. So, congrats to these Young Romans — they killed me with simplicity and a familiar sound that I happen to love.
Go ahead and meet Brad Hooks and Sari Mellafe, the new duo on the block. Their music is built more for autumn than summer, but we don’t pick the timing here at SIC. We just let in the tunes that knock the loudest.
