Editorial Reviews

Brooklyn's own Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds deliver an eclectic and timeless mix of gritty blues, soul, funk and garage rock. Led by the dynamic, soulful and sexy Arleigh Kincheloe and her brother Jackson on harmonica, SSDB are one of the must
see live acts of 2012.

The tight-knight collective's nine endlessly talented musicians have performed alongside artists ranging from Dr. John and Wynton Marsalis to Beyonce and Hercules and Love Affair, creating an undeniably original and raucous sound that is at the core of the group s new album 'Pound Of Dirt,' out February 28th 2012 on Modern Vintage Recordings.

I'm off too a festival in Arkansas where Sister Sparrow so bought this album so I'd know what to expect. Not a bad track and the horn section are an absolute joy to listen to

It was strictly an accident that I ended up at a Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds show here in Atlanta. After attending the show that only had about 45 people attending, I immediately purchased this CD and declared them to be my new favorite band. Amazing musicianship and great songs. You can't listen and not instantly feel cooler and want to get up, dance and tell everyone you know to check out the band. Think Janis Joplin backed by Tower of Power...only better!

After seeing them live a couple times I bought this for my fiancé for Christmas. Arliegh Kinchloe & Co translate well to cd. Usually the energy from a live show is lost on cd but they definately deliver. The sound is awesome & high energy & her voice amazing. A must have for any fans of funk/ska/r&b/or just plain rock. The Dirty Birds can't be pigeon holed by just one genre.

I was recently able to see this band at a free riverside concert in Chattanooga and was blown away. Their sound is so incredible and tight. I'm a classic rock junkie, a child of the 60's, but love this new sound. It is not like anything in recent memory. Sister Sparrow has one incredible voice and the rest of the band is so good I don't understand why this is the first I had heard of them. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD and if at all possible go to see them live. You will be glad you did.

Coming out several months and several thousand hard touring miles after their debut, the second Sister Sparrow disc has better songs, better production, and is undeniably d-d-d-dirtier than the first. Some high points: Sasha Brown's slide work on "Too Much" and chiming guitar arpeggios on the story song "Another Ride" , Arleigh channeling a hungover speakeasy denizen on "Hollow Bones", drummer Bram's second line groove on "Millie Mae" and bass man Aidan Carrol's fat tones on the title track "Dirt". The exotic chordal arrangements from the four man horn section keep the conventional song structures from sounding cliched, the brass also pull off respectable solos throughout.. It's hard to say who in this band has the dopest skills, but Jackson Kincheloe's molten, overdriven, compressed harmonica at the high end and Baritone Sax player Johnny Butler's ass-rattlers at the bottom of the register frame a lot of nasty frequencies in between. A fun band to follow on twitter (@SistersparrowDB) as they tool around the country packed all nine of them in a van, tweeting from barbecue shacks and large festivals (Telluride, Bonnaroo, MountainJam) alike. Be sure and catch this modern take on an old school soul revue and eat a pound of dirt when they hit your town.
