Bones & Beeker - "Oh Lord" (audio) (premiere)

Hip-hop and indie folk mesh beautifully on this track by the Minneapolis duo.

Comprised of singer-songwriter Anthony Newes (formerly of Villa) and producer/programmer Brendan Kelly (known in hip-hop circles as BK-One) Bones & Beeker offer a comfy combination of indie folk music and hip-hop production. What might seem like disparate sounds are meshed beautifully by the Minneapolis duo, something you can hear on the quietly beautiful "Oh Lord".

Bones & Beeker's self-titled debut album will be released 13 November on Wax Poetics.
