The Sours: The Sours (ZoZe Music)

New York’s The Sours is a two-acoustic-guitar duo fronted by singer Sarah Schrift, and accompanied by a pianist on a few numbers. The mood on most tracks is 3 a.m. melancholy with vocals just past the edge of resignation. Nick Drake looms as an inspiration, though occasionally the sky brightens to suggest Amy Winehouse, relaxed and singing from the comfort of her living room sofa. The recording is intimate and woody; you can hear knuckles tapping the body of the guitar.
