[JOHNNY AND JUNE FOLK] Married musicians often have an unrivaled dynamic balance, one that plays on sexual tension and frustration. Such is the case with Ontario’s Whitehorse. Less than three years old, the folk rock venture of Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland dips into genres like you sample flavors at Salt & Straw. On the most recent release, The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss, the duo jumps between gentle fingerpicking and beguiling two-part harmonies to distorted spaghetti westerns that would fit nicely into a modern Sergio Leone spinoff. Other numbers showcase Doucet’s Cash’d-out grit and rockabilly appeal, while McClelland continually spouts her sassy, unbridled vocals atop the blues-infused riffs that have made Doucet a contender for the title of the Canadian Jack White.
