Live Video: Country Lips

photo by Mike Emigh (view set)

There isn’t a plethora out there on the wide open spaces of the internet about the wild Seattle band Country Lips, so here’s a bit of detail: the 7-piece band sounds like a whiskey-infused, shack-swaying barn party. The staple of their music is their fast moving fingers on violin, guitar and keys, accompanied by vocals sounding like reeds bending in open air. Fresh off an April 26 Folklife Pre-Festival party at The Tractor Tavern, Country Lips are poised for more live shows in Seattle, with one slated for May 26 at The Crocodile with The Dusty 45’s and a gig at Capitol Hill Block Party July 26. With a new full-length record in the works slated for “sometime this year”, the band, already known for their rowdy performances, recently came in to KEXP for a raucous set live on Swingin’ Doors with Don Slack. Watch it here:
