Today is a folk/bluegrass day and it was Poor Remy’s Facebook page that convinced me to deem it so: “We like to yell. We write songs together. We stamp our feet. There’s a lot of hand-clapping. Enjoy our hamboning music.” So in other words, put down that second (or fifth) cup of afternoon joe. These guys are about to inject so much energy into your bones you won’t need it.
With their new self-produced EP Still Sleeping, Poor Remy takes us back to bluegrass basics – soaring vocal harmonies, wailing harmonicas and plucky banjos. A great reminder that simple and straightforward doesn’t have to mean quiet and serene. In fact, if you’re in Gambier, Ohio it just might mean the very opposite.
Check out the video of the EP’s title track “Still Sleeping.” Stream and name your price on bandcamp. Make some friends who like to yell and stamp a lot.
