Almost skimmed over a jewel this morning when listening to Spinner’s free streaming new releases: Middle Brother. Combo of frontmen from 3 revered indie bands–Dawes, Delta Spirit, and Deer Tick. Spirit and Tick are personal favorites, and this conglomerate does not disappoint. Leans a little more towards the cadence and atmosphere of Delta Spirit’s Ode to Sunshine, but the raspy whine of Deer Tick’s lead man John McCauley pierces the album throughout. Solid, folksy, somber yet hopeful tunes to tap your foot to. Take a listen at Spinner, and here are some links/videos of Deer Tick’s and Delta Spirit’s previous work.
