Australia's The Weeping Willows are doing Americana as good as any American band out these days. Their latest single, "House of Sin," has that modern folk dabbling in classic folk feel we love around here. It's definitely not a traditional sound, but it leans much more traditional than some of the more mainstream folkies out there by adding in a tiny bit of rock and roll. It also has a certain darkness and menace lingering below the surface. "House of Sin" reminds me of the mellower side of Shovels & Rope combined with the dark, gothic cabaret of Charming Disaster.
