These days it is quite difficult for us to distinguish between the multitude of bands that have decided to pick up a banjo and add a little twang in speak. The success of bands like The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, and on and on and on has made record labels look anywhere to find artists of similar molds and we get it. It sells like hotcakes. Country music and similar genres are all still huge moneymakers, but with this derivative sound a fatigue starts to kick in and listeners tend to slowly reject. Hell, we find ourselves immediately passing over any press releases that mention traits like the previously mentioned artists, but every once in a while one sneaks its way in and turns out to be pretty darn good. Such is the case with Brooklyn’s The Defibulators. The aren’t your usual foot stomping, quick guitar strumming gimmeke type of band. They have substance and harmonies that recall the music that was played at the Grand Ole Opry in its heyday. They are set to release their new album Debt’ll Get’em on August 27th and we think you should get aquainted with them with their new single from that release “Let Me See That Ponytail Run.”

    I love the direction that the Defibs are headin’ in…..which is always subject to change, thankfully. Listen to them fine lyrics.
