Old Death Whisper, the Tumblers

BRANDON WIDDER
7 pm., Sunday May 05 | Free.
White Eagle Saloon
836 N Russell St.
 
[COUNTRY-TINGED PARLOR ROCK] Old Death Whisper is a western band with no clear frontman, passing around the vocal mic like a surly bottle of Jack Daniels around a summer’s campfire. But that’s not to say its music lacks a common thread. The Idahoan sextet casually blends elements of roots and punk rock, harnessing dulcet slide guitar and down-home banjo picking alongside howling free-for-all choruses and rolling-train rhythms that shove the band’s gunslinger tales well beyond Hank Williams into the realm of dirty, fuzz-wrenched country punk. The communal fanfare, full of “piss and vinegar,” as the band puts it, undoubtedly pays homage to the icons of old while offering a forthright delivery of latter-day tunes from the band’s meager two-EP discography. And who doesn’t love a free show?
