Kopecky Family Band on the Run

They aren’t on the run actually, but I am. I’m sitting here in my car while my trusty love handles the wheel rolling down the late night highway. We had out of town business to attend and I’m knocking this bad boy out ultra-mobile like. It also serves as great practice for next week when we take a longer trek down to Austin for SXSW. One of the bands that I have on my speed gun radar is the Kopecky Family Band. Straight out of Tennessee, this Radiohead and Sigur Ros influenced faux family soothes and rocks at the same time.

Give a listen to ‘Birds.’ At first you hear a little bit of some new Black Keys but then it swings around into some new age like Stereolab. The endearing tone lays the foundation starting with Kelsey and the followed by the emotive voice Gabe. Seriously, when Gabe comes in, it tears you away and makes you feel how hard he his feeling. It’s hard to hear that in a pop song but somehow The Kopecky Family Band does it.
