Yes, yes, I'm totally late on this one, but I'd rather post it than not. Ferraby Lionheart released their sophomore effort The Jack Of Hearts earlier this month and it couldn't be a more perfect soundtrack as summer winds down. With slightly hazed folk-pop jaunts, the album lies in a perfect balance between sprightly toe tapping and capacious somnolence. Plus, if you can get Rainn Wilson involved with your music videos, you must be doing something right.
Above and below you'll find "Harry and Bess," a song about Houdini and his legendary illusion of getting out of inescapable handcuffs with the help of his wife Bess, who passes the key to him in a kiss.
