Middle Brother :: "Middle Brother"

Middle Brother is the combined talents of the front men of Dawes, Deer Tick and Delta Spirit. It's three-parts plaid and three-times the late night whiskey and three times the unfiltered Lucky Strikes that makes them all sound like they've been up for a week, emotionally destroyed over a women on somewhat legitimate grounds. The sound shakes out in the direction of the rootsy-folk that all three parent bands do so well. On their eponymous second single, "Middle Brother", they build a jangly acoustic progression into something bigger, a nearly saloon piano slammer in the final moments. It's about impressing, or at least not disappointing, your parents, making your mark. Maybe the middle brother is easy to forget, they imply. These three, even together, are subordinate to no one.
