1. The Civil Wars : NPR Field Recordings


    from NPR Music / Added

Though not a couple themselves — each is married, and Williams just had a baby — they convey many hallmarks of a loving union, particularly in the way she stares at him sweetly as they sing. As most Civil Wars fans know by now, Williams and White recently announced that they've canceled all of their current tour dates in response to "internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition." This, naturally, has fueled talk of a breakup — the assurance that "our sincere hope is to have new music for you in 2013" doesn't specify whether that music would be made together or separately — which is a pretty crummy development for one of the most amiably appealing (not to mention best-selling) new bands to pop up in ages. Recorded in presumably happier times — during the Sasquatch! Music Festival in George, Wash., this past summer — this Field Recording captures the pair amid backstage grapevines as they sing beautifully between gusts of wind. In a bit of sad irony, the song they play ("Kingdom Come") is a reassuring ode to loyalty in hard times: "Don't you fret, my dear / It'll all be over soon," they sing in unison. "I'll be waiting here / For you." Here's hoping. -- STEPHEN THOMPSON Credits Producers: Mito Habe-Evans, Saidah Blount; Videographers: Jim Beckmann, Mito Habe-Evans, Scott Holpainen; Audio Engineers: Matt Ogaz, Kevin Wait; Production Assistant: Nick Michael; Special Thanks to Sasquatch!
