Here is something that's a little down and dirty and oh so irresistible. Larkin Poe
are a sisterly duo who pack some of the meanest, Southern chops in the biz. Maybe that's why folks like Elvis Costello and Conor Oberst have enlisted Rebecca and Megan Lovell for collaborations and opening slots, of late. Their snarly blend of blues, rock, folk, and country is sheer bad-assery...something the duo showed off during a recent swing through our Brooklyn studio.
Bringing three songs from their new album Reskinned
, the Lovell sisters stomp on the kick, set fire to a slide guitar, and generally crank things as loud as they've ever been in our space. Our ears might have been throbbing, but the performance here is wicked. In between cuts, Rebecca and Megan give us the scoop on everything you need to know about their little family band, including some fun facts on sharing a lineage with Edgar Allan Poe.
