Prepare to hear a bunch about these guys in 2013. They’ve recently signed to Park The Van Records to release their debut, Nobody Dances In This Town and have been touring like mad. I spoke to someone that saw them at Austin City Limits and they said they were fantastic. Based on these videos below, I would imagine that to be accurate.
While their name might not be the most original thing in the world, their music more than makes up for it. Brother and sister Robert (guitar/kick drum) and Rachel Kolar (tambourine) split vocal duties, Lauren Brown adds full-body percussion with simultaneous drumming and tap-dancing, Oliver Newell plucks the stand up bass and Aaron Robinson plays lead guitar on a lap slide.
I imagine they will be down in Austin for SXSW and I am really looking forward to getting a look at them myself.
