Scuzzed out garage blues from Bath

Apparently The Family Rain come from Bath. They sound, however, more like they were found spitting and drunk, swinging bloodied fists at nothing in a filthy gutter outside a Philidelphia dive bar. With the nearly-hip hop drums of  Black Keys, and the blues snarl Jack White's made a mint out of, they've got this lofi garage rock schtick down pat. So what? We hear you cry.. so have a million other guys.... Fair enough BUT listen to the sweet, fuzzy guitar euphoria playing out Carnival and you can tell that these boys are a cut above. The fact that they're three brothers makes me want to make lazy Kings of Leon comparisons, but good sense prevails. Definitely worth keeping an eye on. Catch them live on March 18th at London's Seabright Arms.
