Poets Row

Exquisite Corpse
Self-released

Taking its name from the Capitol Hill neighborhood where its founders met, Poets Row is an indie-folk outfit made up of Emily Hobbs and Mickey Bakes. Exquisite Corpse, the duo's new EP, is a delightfully organic collection of sparse, harmony-laden tracks reminiscent of Gram Parsons's duets with Emmylou Harris. The often downright spooky inflection of these minimalist songs is a welcome accompaniment to a glass of brandy and a wool blanket during Colorado's cold winter nights. Titles like "Haunted," "Ancient Game" and "Don't Wake the Dead" provide a bone-rattling contrast to the down-home friendliness of Hobbs's sweet-tea vocals and Bakes's Ryan Adams-style melancholy.
