Crooked Brothers

Thank You I’m Sorry

Recorded in both a warehouse and a hand-built log cabin, The Crooked Brothers’ third studio album Thank You I’m Sorry resonates with the lonesome snarl of a concrete outlaw. 

Beginning with the mournful “Dear Antonia,” the album then sways from the deep, bourbon-soaked folk grooves of “Blackbird in the Snow” to the growly, sleazier neon-lit blues of “Organs on Demand” and “Lightning In My Chest.” From the busted-heart poetry of the lyrics to the quiver of the lap steel, Thank You I’m Sorry is the perfect soundtrack for driving down a dusty highway towards the dive bar you got a black eye at last week.
