There’s a beauty in the simplicity of “Who Knew,” the story-time folk magnet from Massachusetts duo YOU WON’T. “If I was a cute little kid/I would show you the painting I did,” begins vocalist Josh Arnoudse over mandolin chords, the song reaching a confident climax only when Raky Sastri’s accordion allows. Andouse’s chemistry with Sastri goes back to 1999, when the pair led a high school production of My Favorite Year, but in the past decade their work mainly has involved indie cinema. Last year they holed up in the not-so-hellacious hamlet of Littleton and banged out the Skeptic Heart EP, a homey, swinging-beer-mug collection of fuzzy stomp-about folk-bent compositions that impressed the shit out of Rolling Stone Germany (Babel Fish tells us they loved it!). Back from an East Coast tour that gobbled up November, You Won’t come home to T.T. the Bear’s Place this Wednesday, November 23, sharing the stage with Andrea Belanger, Herego, and New Hampshire’s Aunt Martha. You Won’t, “Who Knew” — if you didn’t, then you will. Grab the MP3 below.
