Larkin Poe

Georgia sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell are blues-steeped duo Larkin Poe, the latter half of their name inspired by distant kin Edgar Allan. Rebecca’s tough, declarative vocals and slithery electric guitar, Megan’s potent harmonies and swamp-doused lap steel, plus gut-wrenching rhythms translate into borderline feral and noirish rural blues. Their new Venom & Faith covers Bessie Jones and Skip James with bristling intensity. Biting originals evoke Southern roots strung from the Delta through gospel, boogie, and the Allmans, amid subtly laced pop hooks and hip-hop. Goodnight, Texas opens.
