Featured Artist: the caseworker

Despite living on opposite sides of the planet, Conor Devlin (Switzlerland) and Eimer Devlin (Petaluma, CA) — aka the caseworker — create beautiful, rich songs crafted with patience and care. The band’s new five-song EP, Boats, is subtle indie-pop at its finest, feauturing striking male/female vocals and the haunting melodic chime of dueling reverb-drenched guitars. Vast, lush arrangements and great understated hooks accent the band’s obvious gift for songwriting. “Hold On To The Road” was recently used in this Slater video, “Evolution – Letting Go 2005″:
