A friend introduced me to The Ditty Bops, after two minutes I knew it was my kind of music, original, full of emotion, interesting sounds, and beautiful voices. (It distinctly reminds me of much of the music from the "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack.) I now have my own copy and it has become my new favorite CD. I'm really exciteed about the next CD coming out!

Oddly addicting, the Ditty Bops will entice those those looking for something strangely new and refreshing yet as old as grandma. Let me rephrase that into a more positive light. As the very sticker slapped upon the case packaging says it's a combination of "bluegrass, honky-tonk, and ragtime." Still possibly not the most flattering description to some, but the Ditty Bops put a modern, or perhaps simply a personalized twist to it. A banjo laden female duo whose country influence reminds of Modest Mouse, if Modest Mouse was a soothingly upbeat carefree exprience. That isn't to say there isn't any slower darker sounds, as they do seem to equal out, or slightly to the bright side. I would personally compare them to Boa, of Serial Experiment Lain fame, as well, though few are likely to make any sense of that. The sounds of Coheed and Cambria come to mind also. A great mix of complex classic acoustic instruments with a more modern electric sound at points as well. Seemless and never straining against eachother. Melding together into something infinitely relaxing or rejuvinating when you want it. In short it's the 30's without the flappers and prohibition and bluegrass without the jug band and stills. Simply a style of it's own.
