SXSW Song of the Day: He’s My brother She’s My Sister – Can’t See The Stars

He’s My Brother She’s My Sister are an LA band whose bluesy-folk laid back sound makes it sound like they’re from the Midwest. If you are wondering about the band’s name, it is because the lead vocalists are a brother/sister duo. I’ve always wondered about brother/sister dynamics in the band. Are they under the ‘whatever happens on the road, stays on the road’ rule? What if little sister picks up a heroin habit and sleeps around with random AR people on the tour? Is bigger brother cool with that, or is that a phone call to mom? Similarly, what if big brother starts fancying high end prostitutes and betting on dog fights during the tour? What does little sister do?

These things can destroy bands. Luckily, He’s My Brother/She’s My Sister aren’t nearly popular enough to pick up high end prostitutes just yet, so they can concentrate on things like making good music. One of the places they’ll be at to promote their craft is Austin, Texas. They’ll be at SXSW and based on a few of these tracks, I am tempted to check them out.
