The band has signed to Park the Van Records for the release of their forthcoming debut LP, Nobody Dances in this Town, and are embarking on a nationwide tour behind the album, including a performance at Austin City Limits.
Featuring sibling vocalists and a tap dancing drummer, the eclectic troupe exudes the earnestness of folk, the colorfulness of glam rock, the rawness of blues, the theatrics of cabaret, and the hip shake of rock-a-billy. Brother and sister Robert Kolar (guitar/kick drum) and Rachel Kolar (tambourine) split vocal duties, Lauren Brown adds full-body percussion with her simultaneous drumming and tap-dancing, Oliver Newell plucks the stand up bass and Aaron Robinson plays lead guitar on a lap slide. In the past year, the band has played 150+ live performances, with near-capacity crowds in 16 major US cities. They have toured extensivel, sharing the stage with Neko Case, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Charles Bradley, The Blow, Local Natives, Dawes, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, and many others.

San Diego Music Thing Preview: He's My Brother, She's My Sister
I've definitely talked about He's My Brother, She's My Sister a lot on this site and on SoundDiego.com, but in case you haven't heard of the band, I thought I'd share their press release with you. They're really a talented bunch and I've seen them several times in San Diego and even a couple times in LA, and they're certainly worth catching if you haven't seen them before. The band performs at 10:30pm on Friday at Bar Pink as part of the San Diego Music Thing.
