Thousands

If Simon and Garfunkel had stayed together long enough to grow old and name an heir, Thousands just might have been the recipient. Guitar-toting duo Kristian Garrard and Luke Bergman shudder at the likeness, but their tender tones, delicate arrangements, and exquisite harmonies definitely earn them the comparison. But unlike S&G, Garrard and Bergman—active members of their alma mater UW's experimental-music collective Table and Chairs—incorporate more unconventional sounds into their work; their debut release "The Sound of Everything" hums like a pioneering take on "The Sound of Silence."
