My Brothers Banned
Meet Me In The Park
White Trash Records The Mohegan Colony musical collective My Brothers Banned are known for their rather happy-go-lucky style. The band has a standing gig at the NYC Marathon at the corner of 63rd and 1st St. For over half a decade they’ve been entertaining runners, shouting words of encouragement and adding a special ambiance to the race. Similarly, Meet Me In The Park is a nice running record, working up from a rather mellow tempo with the album’s namesake track on through to the groovy “Goodnight Sister”, brushes and drumbeat setting a jogging pace. While not necessarily a sprint, the record swells with effortless harmonies and strong percussion. My Brothers Banned draws heavily from the Byrds and Gram Parsons, adding a bit of country twang to each track as well. Recalling the jam sessions of Summers in the Park’s past, Meet Me In The Park is an open invitation to enjoy the music.
