Named after the expansive Maryland state tree, this Baltimore duo plays sad-sack indie rock with heartstring-yanking touches of folk. The band's sound feels intimate, but not small, affording them slow claps from music reviewers like the A.V. Club and Pitchfork. Selections from their 2011 record, Civilian, have graced the soundtracks of shows such as "The Walking Dead" and "Being Human." The girl-boy duo plays a sold-out show at the Masonic Lodge in support of last year's Shriek.
