Turpentine Brothers

Turpentine_brothers More great stuff from the fine folks at Alive-Total Energy Records, the Turpentine Brothers are not brothers but a threesome that play raw, gnarly garage rock and roll or as their record label so adequately describes it “garage/punk/dirtbag R&B.” Hailing from Boston, the Turpentine Brothers are being called a grittier version of the White Stripes by some but I just listen mesmorized to their raw rock and roll fury especially with that screeching wailing organ going at full throttle. If you want to know what I’m talking about listen to “We Don’t Care About Your Good Times” or “Why Can’t I do” off of their debut album “We Don’t Care About Your Good Times.” If you want to experience the Turpentine Brothers live then check them out as they are on tour now.
