The Dutchess & The Duke "She's the Dutchess, He's the Duke" (2008)
Why is it that every band who says they're influenced by the Stones references Exile or Sticky Fingers? The Dutchess & the Duke reference the Stones from an earlier time. Subtle hints towards psychedelia or blues, but this is more "Mother's Little Helper" than "Rocks Off". Simply played with ragged but right harmonies, this is good stuff. And like those old records, this one clocks in at just over 30 minutes, so it doesn't overstay it's welcome.
