The highly anticipated debut album from The O's does not arrive in stores until Feb. 10 but you can get it NOW exlusively at iTunes. You can also stream the entire album at Here is what the press has been saying about The O's and their debut album We Are The O's: "Easily the best new band of the year, The O's ,with their minimal musical set-up, have created one of the richest sounds of any band I've heard in awhile. This may only be a duo, but there is nothing lacking in their sound. And no, this is not another White Stripes wannabe duo, but rather a country duo that is more reminiscent of Everly Brothers." Ghost of Blind Lemmon Blog "100 bands you need to know about for 2009" Alternative Press "With experience in some eight other beloved local bandsranging from the Polyphonic Spree to Boys Named SueTaylor Young and John Pedigo of The O's have their own large shoes to fill. Luckily, their debut release doesn't disappoint. Like Young and Pedigo themselves, The O's' sound is accessible, amiable and spirited in its front-porch twang and family-band harmonies. "California" instantly demands repeats in the player (and head) with its infectious chorus and windows-down attitude, while closer "I Love You So Much" is instantly endearing in its urgent and seemingly whiskey-fueled declarations." Dallas Observer "They are the O's, a Dallas duo that's been getting critical raves and drawing crowds since forming in early summer. One strums a guitar and plays bass drum with his foot. The other switches between a banjo and a custom steel guitar. They take turns singing simple bluegrass tunes that warm the spirit and set the toes a-tappin'." DALLAS MORNING NEWS "Idol Records has signed Dallas musical duo The O's. The O's formed in summer 2008 by Taylor Young and John Pedigo, having known one another through each other's bands, including Polyphonic Spree, Young Heart Attack, Slick 57, Young James Long, Rose County Fair, Boys Named Sue, P. W. Long, and The Backsliders. Already generating a buzz on the strength of their live shows, the pair is in the studio recording songs for a debut to be released in early 2009." Pegasus Ne
