I had an immediate reaction to HoneyHoney's music: Suzanne Santo's smooth and sultry voice, compelling lyrics and references to Los Angeles made it hard to ignore. The L.A. duo's Americana sound comes with a bit of a twist, and its live session really brought its songs to life — particularly Santo's expert banjo playing. Santo and bandmate Ben Jaffe clearly respect each other, and their mutual admiration seems to serve as a challenge to make fantastic music for everyone else to enjoy.

HoneyHoney will appear on KCRW's SXSW showcase on Wednesday, March 14.
