Album Notes
June 06, 2008
The Half Brothers
I know, I know - I never expected to post about a modern bluegrass album on this blog either, but sometimes, excitement just gets the better of me. The Half Brothers are a Seattle-based bluegrass trio (guitar / mandolin / banjo) that puts an irreverent spin on a genre that I admittedly know pleasingly little about; if you ever wondered what the Hall & Oates classic "Rich Girl" would sound like accompanied by banjo, now is your opportunity. By the same token, the album's not just a tongue-in-cheek fest - it's a seriously musical affair, featuring rich three-part harmonies and unassuming lyrical depth.

Benny Cornelius

half silly + half serious + half Scruggs = all supple, sonorous and satisfying
The Half Brothers are leading up the burgeoning Seattle "urban caffeinated bluegrass by way of Frank Zappa" scene (look it up), with blazing feats of banjo daring and a forkful of lightning speed mandolin on a crispy bed of guitar.

These guys have the twang in their thang, and have churned out a great set of fiery and fun originals (plus a smashing Hall & Oates cover). Newgrass it ain't, but there's no shortage of high lonesome 3-part vocals, delivered while both pickin' and grinnin'.
