I know you've been waiting to shake your tail feather all winter long... well, you've got the perfect opportunity coming up with Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds. With a horn section that would be the envy of any Nola street corner, coupled with the theatrical melisma of singer Arleigh Kincheloe 's antics, you will find it impossible to stand in one place.
This is a 9-piece powerhouse of funk and blues with a solid penchant for taking these forms and churning them up into a volcanic stew that's erupted across the states, as the band's just returned from their first national tour. The band's latest LP, 'Pound of Dirt,' contains all the funk/ska/bluesy trademarks they've made their own, and adds in some new flavor in barn burners like 'Millie Mae' and 'Make it Rain.' I suggest not listening over headphones... its just not loud enough.
Catch Sister Sparrow when they play the CBGB Festival this July, and see the video for "Make it Rain" below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
