Utah Carol sounds like they could be playing their soft, innocent folk on a front porch in some small, rural town. What makes the married duo of JinJa Davis and Grant Birkenbuel so intriguing is that they’re actually from the Windy City. With equal parts country and alt-folk, Utah Carol has crafted a thoughtful, unique record in the vein of Iron & Wine, perfect for listening to while sitting under the stars on a clear night. Both “Come Back Baby” and “Ruby” are highlights on an album chock full of profoundly simple and sweet songs that drift back and forth between pop and folk. Rodeo Queen is available now, so get to it.
