A slice of New Weird America, "Two Distinguished Gentlemen," rooted in folk & blues, steeped in psychedelia (including an entrancing take on King Crimson's "I Talk To The Wind"), is the electroacoustic melding of two of Austin's long-time idiosyncratic musicians, Ralph White (Bad Livers) and Steve Marsh (Evil Triplet; Terminal Mind; Radarcave). 21st-century troubadours, Ralph and Steve cycle through heartbreak, loss, protest and spiritual renewal.
