Paste Magazine is a great resource for new music like the sort I post here, in case you hadn't heard of it before. It's by far my favorite magazine and it has once again proven to me why, by bringing the band KaiserCartel to my attention.

KaiserCartel is a Brooklyn-based folk-rock duo consisting of Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel, thus the name. I know very little about them other than that since I only just today heard of them on the most recent Paste sampler. What I can tell you is that they make beautiful male/female dual vocal folk music that makes me smile and want to hear more.

The magazine shows the track "Okay" being from their new album entitled "March Forth", but it does not appear to be released as of yet. So until then we can enjoy tracks from their EPs "Okay (And Other Things We Feel)" available on iTunes and at Amazon, and the tracks they've made available from their "Double Standard" EP via their website.
