Songs We Love: Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders, 'To Keep And To Be Kept'

The Australian band Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders has quietly released a handful of albums, the latest of which is titled Playmates; it's due out in the U.S. on Feb. 24.

Ladder's voice has a dusky richness to it that rivals the likes of Nick Cave and Mark Lanegan. "To Keep And To Be Kept" harnesses that mystery with the aid of guest Sharon Van Etten, who adds another intriguing dynamic to Ladder's sound.
