If you're not familiar with them, check out the video for "Tuck The Darkness In":

Or this one for "Sweet Moment":

It's pretty, mostly acoustic music, although there are moments that remind me of Magnolia Electric Company... they're a North Carolina-based duo: Phil Moore and Beth Tacular, who recorded this in Bon Iver's studio in Wisconsin - hence the interesting combination of simple, mountain-based acoustic plucking and some of the more lush backing sounds.
