He’s My Brother She’s My Sister‘s unique yet familiar sound exudes the earnestness of folk, the colorfulness of glam rock,  the rawness of blues, the theatrics of cabaret, and the hip shake of rock-a-billy.

Brother and sister Robert Kolar and Rachel Kolar split vocal duties, with Robert on guitar and kick drum and Rachel on tambourine. Their voices range from boisterous to introspective, from breezy to emotive. Lauren Brown adds full-body percussion with her fluid tap-dancing. Oliver Newell plucks the stand up bass with joyous flair. Aaron Robinson plays lead guitar on a lap slide, veering from nuanced psychedelica to American roots riffs.

The band’s infectious rhythms and high energy make the sounds come alive and cause even uninitiated crowds to erupt in dance.

They have toured the US extensively and  have shared the stage with The Devil Makes ThreeEdward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zero’s, The Blow, Spindrift, Miranda Lee Richards, The Growlers, Local Natives, Frank Fairfield, Tapes N’ Tapes, Alexander, Dawes, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, & many others.

The band’s first full-length album is expected to be released in early 2012.

He’s My Brother She’s My Sister to face Judgment Day…

He’s My Brother She’s My Sister to face Judgment Day

On Third Night of Los Angeles Residency

Following two packed house performances at The Satellite, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister return for the third week of their residency with another great night of guest performers that prove the band is not afraid to be upstaged by anyone.

This week, with “Judgment Day” imminent (according to certain religious sects) the band plans to counter attack with an escape from all wrath and judgment. Read about it and see the full schedule for week two below.

And for something completely different, you can watch a video of the band being upstaged by a very animated monkey:

The first two weeks of the residency have been a resounding success. In the words of one reviewer: “I’ve never before seen a venue that packed and that happening on a Monday night. It was easily one of the best live music experiences I’ve ever had. If you live in L.A., get your sweet ass over there one of these Mondays, as He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister has a residency at The Satellite throughout the entire month of May…and it’s FREE.”

Escape to the End of Innocence
