EDITORS’ NOTES

What started as a casual jam session between two friends became one of the year's more eclectic collaborations: hardcore singer turned emo troubadour Dallas Green (of City and Colour) and pop firebrand Alecia Moore (a.k.a. Pink!) team up for a set of understated folk ballads. Green's plaintive vocals over a plucked acoustic guitar will be recognizable to fans, but Moore's performance sounds nothing like her Pink! material. These songs sizzle and glow like a campfire, the singers sharing the spotlight like two old pals. A string quartet shows up on the emphatic "Break the Cycle," and a slide guitar adds nuance to "You and Me," but most of these tunes are two voices and a few chords.

About You+Me

A country-kissed, indie folk collaboration between singer, songwriter, and actress Alecia Beth Moore, better known by the exclamation point-adorned, rose-tinted stage name P!nk, and Canadian singer/songwriter Dallas Green, who records under the moniker City and Colour, You+Me marries the evocative pastoral northern folk of Fleet Foxes to the soulful, deep south ache of the Civil Wars. Formed in 2014, the duo issued their first single, "You and Me," that September before dropping their RCA-issued debut long-player, Rose Ave., a month later. ~ James Christopher Monger
