VIDEO: The Barr Brothers – “Give the Devil Back His Heart” (Live @ SXSW 2012)

by -

It’s no secret we’re huge fans of The Barr Brothers around here, and I would even go so far as to say that we’re perhaps over-saturating our site with coverage of the band. Maybe it’s because whenever Aaron Fortin passionately writes about something, I pay attention. Or maybe it was because the first time I saw them I had one of those nights, the “you’ll probably remember this for the rest of your life” sorta nights, with a beautiful lady that remains cemented in my heart whenever I hear their music. Or maybe it’s because Whitperson loves them as much as any of us do around here…

Point is, not only have they blown us away consistently, they’re about to head out on a pretty big tour starting in LA where Aaron will be covering for us and then they’re off with dates booked through August. And they continue to stick to that old formula that has always worked for these brothers…. stay creative and use the best of your resources around you. This video kind of showed that all off for me…

The tone that he’s getting off that bicycle percussion is absolutely stunning.

    Looking forward to their gig here in Boston. Been seeing The Slip off and on since 99 and these bros continue to amaze as to how creative they can get. It’s almost to the point of annoying, but in a good way.
