Indie-folk duo The Royal Oui (Adrienne Pierce and Ari Shine) released their fantastic full-length self-titled debut album this week. Every time I listen to it, I seem to fall into a trance-like state as their vocals gorgeously blend together on the album's 11 songs about love and conflict. Thirty-eight minutes later I kind of snap out of it and go about my business, not really knowing what just happened. So what I'm trying to say is, The Royal Oui have gone out and made an album to hypnotize the music buying public. I'm not certain what their ultimate goal is, but if I start clucking like a chicken, alert the authorities.
