Post #223: Deer Tick

***Just released Divine Providence last Tuesday, and 
coming to Triple Rock Social Club 
on November 12th***

Recently, I picked up tickets to see Dawes at their New Year's Eve show at the Varsity.  Having seen Dawes twice before, I am expecting a fun and energetic show.  If you haven't had a chance to check out Dawes, I recommend you do it now, as they are one of the best live acts I have seen.  I posted them HERE and HERE.

Since my first encounter with Dawes, lead singer Taylor Goldsmith, began a side project by the name of Middle Brother along with two other other lead vocalists, one of which is John McCauley III of Deer Tick.

If John is half the frontman as Taylor, I have a feeling that Deer Tick puts on a heck of a show as well.

From Providence, Rhode Island, Deer Tick have released 4 full length albums, their most recent being Divine Providence, which was released this last week, and is where you will find "Main Street".

Their sound tends to bounce around between rock, folk, country and blues.

One of Deer Tick's most unique qualities is the voice of John McCauley III, which really stands out in the above video of "Smith Hill" from their second release Born on Flag Day.

I like bands and all, but when I see videos like the one above, it makes me wish more vocalists would come out with solo acoustic albums.

I love his voice!

Please support this artist!!!
