I had a radio show that only played bands performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.
SHOOK TWINS – AWHILE
I 100% chose this because the band name Shook Twins reminds me of shaking baby syndrome. So far it seems like this has absolutely nothing to do with babies although there is a lot of talk of spinning, so there is still plenty of time for things to get weird. I’m not quite sure how to described this, but it’s like lightly modernized bluegrass? Like if you were trying to introduce bluegrass to some middle school ages kids this is what you would play for them first. Not that this is a bad thing. I’m actually having a great time listening to it. It’s quite fun. Hopefully you’ll like it too. Or not. Whatever.
