Cincinnati trio The Seedy Seeds might be the sonic equivalent of Columbus dessert staple Jeni’s ice cream. Ice cream containing both chocolate and cayenne pepper shouldn’t really work, and neither should music containing both synths and banjo. But you’d be surprised on both counts. By mixing banjo, accordion and acoustic guitar with synths, beats from a toy keyboard and boy-girl harmonies, The Seedy Seeds create a kind of unique, heartfelt indie pop that’s both folksy and danceable at the same time.
