SLCene Suggests: He’s My Brother She’s My Sister at The State Room

by on April 15, 2013

HE’S MY BROTHER, SHE’S MY SISTER, THE STATE ROOM, Tuesday, April 16, 8 p.m., $15

Among the many labels used to describe the pleasing folk-rock of He’s My Brother She’s My Sister are “flamboyant folk,” “psych-acoustic” and “vaudeville-y,” and while those are all more or less accurate, the group led by brother-sister duo Robert and Rachel Kolar really needs to be experienced in person to be appreciated. The alternating boy-girl vocals of the siblings is a great calling card, as is the percussive approach of band drummer Lauren Brown, who is fond of showcasing her tap-dancing skills and using those taps as percussion on some tunes. The band’s debut album, Nobody Dances in This Town, was released earlier this year, and they’ve spent much of the past year on tour with the likes of Neko Case, My Morning Jacket and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. For this headlining show at The State Room, they’ll be joined by one of Utah’s own tour-happy bands, Desert Noises.
