Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR!

The Fayetteville, Arkansas group of rag-tag musicians create songs that walk the fine line between suggestive complexity and a simplicity that makes everything not only palatable but rip-roaring fun. It’s a burst of no holds-barred stop-and-start punk, bouncy electric doo-op, and country with some spank.

Couple all of this with lyrical oddities, such as the zany cut “Go Score Some God,” and you’ve got a record that packs a sonic punch yet manages not to take itself too seriously.

Which is good–bands that elevate themselves to grandiose statures and belittle their songwriting through pretension can get boring fast. Often times their retellings of how they “came to be” are even overwrought with self-importance.

The opposite couldn’t be truer for Brothel Sprouts, a band of few words who would rather let the music speak for itself.

Keep both ears peeled for their new record, Cosmosis, which will mark a noticeable departure from Good Enough.

And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on The Brothel Sprouts!
