My Cousin, The Emperor
Playing at: The Studio at Webster Hall

(125 E. 11th St., East Village)
Get: Tickets | Directions

For singer/songwriter and North Carolina native Jason Reischel, it took a move to Brooklyn to inspire him to write songs with a Southern edge. With his band My Cousin, The Emperor, Reischel explores an alt-country sound that tips its hat to the indie rock scene while still maintaining a simple twang. On this languid, swaying track, the band moseys through a bittersweet melody that features bits of Dixie-rific banjo and pedal steel guitar.

I recently moved to NY from Austin where I soaked up the live music scene. I've been to see a few different shows here, but these guys have that toe-tappin', knee-slappin style with an edge. Saw them for the first time at Joe's Pub and really enjoyed the show!

I read about these guys on My Old Kentucky Blog about a month ago and I saw them at the Living Room last summer. Great tunes. "A Long Way from Home" is a nice track, too. I'd def be at this show if I didn't have a final at 9 tomorrow morning. Adding "Montevideo" to my study playlist though

Not alot of bands mix as many musical styles as these guys. Good stuff.
