Brooklyn indie folk-rock art collective Balthrop, Alabama, brings to mind the excitement and warmth of a party with all your family, friends, and neighbors in your childhood living room. Founded by Alabama-born songwriter-siblings Pascal and Lauren Balthrop, the “town” has a population somewhere around 10 at any given time, often including enough members of other notable NYC acts to make it a veritable supergroup, and always including live drawing by artist Michael Arthur. With their latest full length album, the tiny town of Balthrop gets electricity, and their familiar tales of love, dead people, and dead people in love are joined by the subjects of oil, brotherhood and death, happiness and woe.
Featured song: “Artifacts”
Balthrop, Alabama’s album, We Have Electricity, is available now from End Up Records.
