RS Live: Middle Brother's Acoustic Jamboree

Members of Deer Tick, Delta Spirit and Dawes perform in the Rolling Stone's office

By |

Middle Brother, a folk rock band featuring Deer Tick's John J. McCauley III, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes and Matt Vasquez from Delta Spirit, stopped by the Rolling Stone office to perform an acoustic set featuring three songs -- "Middle Brother," "Thanks For Nothing" and "Blue Eyes" -- from their debut album. Afterwards, the group sat down to discuss how their concerts, which include sets from each member before culminating in a Middle Brother group set, are like a rock & roll "recession special," and how they influenced each other in making their first album as a band.
