Somewhere in an alt-country fantasy land, some grungy kid was flipping through his iPod and stumbled upon the insane trifecta of Dawes, Deer Tick, and Delta Spirit: "Dude, I could listen to these three in a row all day long!"
Then, somewhere in the musical heavens, that wish was granted, when the three respective frontmen for each band decided to form a band called Middle Brother. They're playing a one-off show in Los Angeles on December; Partisan Records will drop their debut album on March 1st; and further spring dates will come.
This pretty much says it all: "In a time when synthesizers and laptops are taking over stages, Goldsmith, McCauley and Vasquez are leading the pack of young rock songwriters who strive to carry on the tradition of figures such as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen Warren Zevon and Tom Petty. Middle Brother came together in mid-2009 when the three songsmiths realized, after several on-stage collaborations, that they shared a unique vision and wanted to take it one step further, into the studio. Their songs are anthemic, soulful, passionate and confessional."
