In House #1563: Deadstring Brothers' Starving Winter Report, Iron & Wine Covers New Order

Starving Winter Report is the second full-length from the Deadstring Brothers, out this week on Bloodshot records. While the Sticky Fingers-era Rolling Stones comparisons are abundant and rather obvious, the Deadstring Brothers look to be more than just a cover band. Indeed, the addition on this second release of vocalist Masha Marjieh gives the band an element the Stones never had. Elsewhere, they channel the likes of Gram Parsons, the Band, Bob Dylan, and even early Jayhawks, if they must be reduced to influences. In reality, the Deadstring Brothers are one of the more interesting Americana-flavored acts to pop up in a while and deserve their own listen.
