[press release] Partisan Records is excited to offer the first song from the highly anticipated debut album from Middle Brother. Middle Brother is Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, John McCauley of Deer Tick and Matthew Vasquez of Delta Spirit, and the song is called "Me Me Me." It was originally given away two weeks ago as a Christmas present from the band to its fans. The response was incredible. Now the song can be downloaded HERE [right click, save as]. The full album will be released on March 1, 2011.
Middle Brother played their first show at 2010's SXSW. Their second show took place last month, on December 20, at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, as part of a benefit for Invisible Children. The feedback from the show was outstanding. On the KCRW blog, the writer gushed: "From the moment the first note rang out you could feel something special, almost cosmic in the air. When these three tremendous songwriters join forces the result is effortless, honest, and charmingly rough around the edges. The music is reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, & Nash, or Big Star (but less clean cut) with both sweeping ballads and rowdy refrains. Lyrically, they each had a story to tell of lost love, hopes for glory, and, of course, general debauchery. Onstage, their chemistry is endearing, all of them shining equally as they harmonized between John's growl, Taylor's tender strain and Matt's weathered and wise vocals, brewing a recipe for raw perfection."
Look for Middle Brother to tour throughout the spring.
