Tortoise and Bonnie "Prince" Billy- The Brave and the Bold

This is a pretty interesting collaboration. Tortoise is an experimental jazzy band from Chicago while Billy is a folky songwriter. They make some pretty interesting music together, as it turns out. Many of the songs have a sort of jungle feel to them, which is somewhat characteristic of Tortoise, but Billy fits his singing to the music very well, despite his out-of-place-ity. Sometimes dancey, sometimes mysterious, this is worth a listen.
