Cousins “Live at The Music Room”:
Following a month on the road touring their new record (The Palm At The End Of The Mind), Cousins made their way back to the East Coast to play the Live at The Music Room series. Aaron and Leigh had been playing almost every day for the previous forty-five, and it showed. A super tight set with lots of the raw acoustic space that makes Cousins such a special band. The recording includes material from the first albums, and a nice sampling of the latest. This show was amazing.

Cousins Bio:
Cousins is bare-bones garage-rock power group. Formed in 2009 by Aaron Mangle, the shape shifting group features Leigh Dotey and Pat Ryan who help manifest Mangle’s quirky vision of sweet n’ heavy raucous pop music in a live show that is both poetic and violent. They tip toe between melody and anarchy, creating sounds startling in their delivery while familiar in their arrangement.
