Bourbon Brothers

Bourbon Brothers

self-released

This 10-song CD by Gainesville trio the Bourbon Brothers takes up less than half an hour – you do the math. That’s a good thing: garagey trash rock like this should be short songs. The record was made in “the garage/studio of the Bourbon Brothers’ palatial estate,” so there are times where the signal-to-tape runs a little hot, or there’s an instrument mis-hit here or there that the Brothers didn’t have the time, money, or inclination to “fix.” But I can forgive a multitude of what others may consider sins in return for good songs and a wicked sense of humor, and the Brothers have that in spades. Worth it just for the hilariously anthemic “In Your Pants.” Great, raw ’60s-inspired rock that doesn’t sound at all like revivalists. Somebody get these guys into a real studio, pronto!

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
