BOD (10.21.10) Thieving Irons

Ahh good ol Park Slope and Brooklyn. I’d forgotten about you in all the Swedish, Danish, British and California music we’ve been posting lately. But you can’t forget about Brooklyn. Jay-Z doesn’t so why should we. So here we bring you the rustic southern rock gorgeousness that so belongs in Kentucky or Nashville but it’s in Brooklyn. Thieving Irons or Nate Martinez & Friends, makes one feel as if they just climbed to the peak of an Appalachian mountain, pulled out a leather bladder of whiskey and drained it clean. It’s good ol electric guitar solos, Gomez vocals and a southern piano tap with a flavor of KOL twang that makes for great music. They grab alt-country by the neck and drag it to a new level. They’re damn good and expect to see them on tour or at a festival in 2011. If your racking your brain because you’ve heard of Nate Martinez…riddle solved…he’s the co-founder of Pela. A few tracks posted below and a Daytrotter Session posted for your enjoyment. We can’t wait to see Thieving Irons when they visit Berkeley.
