LoopOTD: The Civil Wars

I've been browsing lps as of late. I figured it was about time I start to rebuild my record collection. I had inherited a couple of crates full from my pops and Adam brought some along with him when we moved in together. 
This morning I stumbled across The Civil Wars. As quoted by their site, "They travel without a backup band, and on their first full-length album, Barton Hollow, the bare-bones live arrangements that fans hear on the road are fleshed out with just the barest of acoustic accoutrements. Each song is an intimate conversation, and no third wheels or dinner-party chatter are going to interrupt that gorgeous, haunting hush.". 

I was simply amazed at how beautifully fulfilling their sound is. Maybe because I myself is am in a place where I'm finding peace and happiness in simplicity that this music speaks to me. Take a listen, it may speak to you too.
