New Tunes from The Cairo Gang

When I first played this track, I thought the brief opening guitar line sounded in the vein of the majority of folk-influenced tunes that come my way, but then the vocals came in to play.  It’s clear after one listen that main man, Emmett Kelly, has an otherworldly voice.  At times, it’s quite gentle, yet it has an operatic pitch that differentiates it from other similar acts.  And this is what you can expect when you listen to the Cairo Gang, who will be releasing their new record The Corner Man on Empty Cellar Records on October 23rd.  I can rest easy knowing you’ll all be as obsessed as I am with this track by end of day tomorrow.
