In the song "Window," Shook Twins fantasize about teleporting to the 1960s, hanging out, and dropping acid. This is ironic because, while they do seem to have mastered time travel, it is evidently in the opposite direction: With their acoustic guitar, banjo, and long golden hair, their appearances suggest that they learned their craft at the knee of Pete Seeger or Woody Guthrie. But Shook Twins are far more than an identical dose of nostalgia. By combining loops, surprising use of a wah-wah pedal, and beatboxing, they make even their most traditional melodies sound innovative. These things are important, but Shook Twins would manage to draw crowds with nothing more than their spine-tingling harmonies, delivered in voices that are nearly indistinguishable. REBECCA WILSON
