The Deadstring Brothers

What kind of music do you think of when you think of Detroit bands?

If you said "alt-country" you're either a smart ass or a fan of The Deadstring Brothers.

Climbing out of the honky-tonk circuit of East Detroit is the Motor City's answer to Wilco. They aren't too heavy on the twang but it's still obvious. They sit on the more rocking side of alt-country but they aren't MC5.

Their self-titled debut album came out late last year. Both of the tunes below are off of that album.
