Seattle’s country rockers North Twin dropped by KEXP to play four songs from their latest and second album, Stronger at the Broken Places, on the Midday Show with Cheryl Waters. Singer and guitarist Tony Fulgham, along with Rebecca Young (bass), Tim DiJulio (guitar & vocals) and Rick Cranford (drums), lean a bit more heavily on the “alt-country” sounds of bands like Drive-by Truckers, Old 97s and the Bottle Rockets than do many of their fellow roots-leaning Northwest peers (The Moondoggies, The Maldives, Fleet Foxes, etc.), but there’s a certain energy, highlighted by Fulgham’s clear, cutting vocals, that transcends the genres and makes a song like “Fool” as accessible to indie hipsters as to the country boot scooters. Check out three songs from the session, including the barn burner “Clear As Day” in its live debut, and download one more song, “Hope It Goes Away,” by subscribing to KEXP’s Video of the Week podcast.
