#539 The Barr Brothers – Half Crazy

“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,” says vocalist Brad Barr. “That music is like a stem cell, really open to going in many directions. The lyrics got a nudge from our friend Nathan Moore – we’re all half crazy, half clear as a bell.” All that translates into a downright awesome track. The band’s new album Sleeping Operator is out in October, while they play at End Of The Road festival this weekend.
