Tonight on Local/Live: Twin Brother

twinbrother

Twin Brother is a group that takes the basic elements of folk and grafts them to the fraying body of alt-rock. At its core, the band is singer-songwriter Sean Raasch and drummer Tyler Nelson, formerly of the two-man alt-rock outfit Jackraasch. On the duo’s self-titled debut as Twin Brother, a host of guest artists are called in to flesh out their sound, but it’s Raasch’s nervy vocals and Nelson’s loose, shuffling drum work that highlight a remarkably strong, assured album. Twin Brother may be more of a re-branding than a new band, but Raasch and Nelson’s sideways take on traditional banjo-and-suspenders folk remains as refreshing and engaging as it was during their Jackraasch years. This Friday, Twin Brother plays the Cactus Club, but you can catch them on the WMSE airwaves at 8pm for Local/Live tonight — WMSE.org or 91.7 FM on your radio dial.
