What I Heard This Morning: The Harvey Girls

The Harvey Girls are a husband-wife duo (Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke) from Portland that likes to juxtapose zapping sprigs of keyboard noise with acoustic instruments. “Smile Like Gwynplaine” is the single off their upcoming album, I've Been Watching a Lot of Horror Movies Lately, and builds layers of harmonized vocals with the aforementioned keyboard noise, marching drums and folk guitar. Apparently, they create most their constructs with a Boss RC-20 pedal that allows them to sample and loop, thusly the duo can sound like a full band.

Give the song a listen. I’ve Been Watching a Lot of Horror Movies lately will be released June 29th by Circle Into Square.
