Streets Of Laredo, the New Zealand-originating family band fast on their way to becoming a household name in Brooklyn, makes the sort of joyous acoustic racket rarely seen in rock clubs these days. Drawing on 70s folk-rock (a la Bob Dylan and Paul Simon), and using horns, guitars, and lots of sing-a-longs, the bright-eyed optimism that brought the group to a new city in a new country is evident in their music.
Featured song: “Slow Train”
