Last night, The Defibulators hosted a great night of music to celebrate their new CD Release, Corn Money.
New York Magazine writes:
In the way they re-create the barroom swing of the Hank era, the Defibulators and their fellow indie-country bands present themselves as more authentic than, say, Taylor Swift. But while Corn Money has moments of unvarnished beauty (â€œYour Hearty Laughâ€), it also includes a degree of Hee Hawâ€“style cornpone (note long underwear). So what is their music: paean or put-on? â€œItâ€™s not ironic, what weâ€™re doing,â€ insists Bru. â€œWeâ€™re not making fun of [country music].â€ Jennings arches his brow. â€œOr are we?â€ Noting Bruâ€™s disapproval, he adds, â€œWeâ€™re not making fun of it. Weâ€™re having fun with it.â€ Sighing, Bru sums up the mystery that is their world: â€œItâ€™s kind of hard to describe to people.â€
You can listen for yourself on their site.
