DEAD FINGERS

Big Black Dog

2014-10-06

Artist:  Dead Fingers

  Title:  Big Black Dog

  Husband and wife, Taylor Hollingsworth and Kate Taylor-Hollingsworth have teamed up with drummer Alan Rosser for the second Dead Fingers release, Big Black Dog. The album features his unique vocals and her pretty, poppy voice, which together, create a nice dynamic.  Backed by guitars, lap-steel, piano, organ, bass, and drums, the songs are full of sound and sport wonderful, but not too busy production. This Birmingham, AL trio comes off as esoteric folk with a tiny bit of a shuffling twang thrown in.  All in all, it's good stuff.
