The Barr Brothers are releasing their new album, Sleeping Operator, (Secret City Records), on October 7th. Based in Montreal, the band includes brothers Brad on guitar/vocals and Andrew on drums, classical harpist Sarah Pagé, and pianist/bassist Andrès Vial.

About the song, Brad wrote on their Soundcloud page:

This song, Half-Crazy, could be described as the tenacious offspring of the North African desert music of Mali/Morocco and the sweat and electricity of the Chicago and Mississippi Delta blues. That music is like a stem-cell, really open to going in many directions. On this track, we wired the harp through a dirty little amplifier. I played my early 40’s Oahu lap-steel. Andrew uses a loping high-hat feel, and the electric bass pushes the whole thing. The lyrics got a nudge from our friend Nathan Moore–we’re all half-crazy, half clear as a bell.

The band is playing Boot & Saddle on Wednesday, November 19th. Go here for more information and tickets. Below, download “Half Crazy.”

    Streaming and downloading are very different things. Badass tune though.
