Middle Brother – “Million Dollar Bill”
This past weekend at SXSW, I had the opportunity to catch one of many sets performed by indie-rock supergroup Middle Brother. Made up of Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, John McCauley of Deer Tick and Matt Vasquez of Delta Spirit, the trio makes music that sounds like what would happen if all three of their bands collided. I know, shitty description, but that’s pretty much exactly how they sound. On the record, McCauley takes more of a center stage, at least vocally, but when it comes to the live format, they all have their turns to shine. At this past weekends event, the fine folks at Austin’s 91.7 KXT and ArtSeek recorded a quick little video of the friends and bandmates performing “Million Dollar Bill,” the closing track off their eponymous debut album. They seem to have so much fun together, I just want an hour of hanging out time with them!
