The band featured on today's Tuesday Tunes is one I discovered completely accidentally. And before you ask, NO, this one does not come from the friendly northern neighbor Canada.
A while ago...I'd say at least a month...Rachel and I planned to meet up at Dan's Silverleaf in Denton, TX to see The Andrew Tinker Band perform. The band starting off the evening was The Spring Standards. Normally I would just sit outside and hang out with friends while the band BEFORE the one I came to hear played, but this trio of incredible musicians hooked me in immediately. I was BUMMED when their set was over, even though I knew the awesomeness of Andrew Tinker was next to come.
Some things that are awesome about them, before I show you some clips:
- Their female singer is a ginger
- They have no drummer...they just divide up the drum kit between the band members. It's an awesome sight to see done live, I'm tellin' ya.
- ....um....they're awesome?? Seriously, I love their sound. Here's a couple of YouTube videos, but do yourself a favor and buy their album and TRY your hardest to go see them play live.
And then my favorite song...there are only live/concert versions, so I'm sorry...there's loud people and other annoying parts about trying to record a live performance of a badass song! (I didn't record this, btw).
