    DIRT POOR ROBINS (riyl The Dear Hunter/The Family Crest)

    This is a very strong recommendation for people who enjoy The Dear Hunter.

    I honestly have heard dozens and dozens of bands who were compared-to or for-fans-of The Dear Hunter over the years, and only a handful are artists I really enjoy if not LOVE.

    This band very well may be the most impressive band I've heard in many years, with their latest record "The Raven Locks Act 3"

    They are from Louisville, KY I guess, which may not mean much, but maybe some folks around here could be familiar?

    bump.

    I cannot get enough of this band! The songwriting and melodies keep drawing me back.

    They're so good. From the production, to the instrumentation, to the vocal arrangements, to even a cool concept, they keep winning me over.

    Quite possible the best new band I've discovered in 4 or 5 years.

    1 of my favorites

    I remember running across them before, on Spotify I think. I remember being impress too, tho I didn't pick up their music.

    Of all the bands that frequently get recommended to fans of The Dear Hunter, this is one of the best in my opinion. I think they've gotten better with every single release, and I'm very excited to see what they do next now that they've finished the The Raven Locks trilogy.

    Oh, that sounds really cool actually! I didn't know they'd made a whole series of videos explaining the story of The Raven Locks either, I'll have to check that out sometime.

    Bump. I finally picked these up digitally. (I asked them via Messenger if they had CDs and they said not since 2011. ) These are really, really good. Highly recommended for fans of Dear Hunter, Bent Knee, etc.

    very cool!

    yeah the only physical copy I got was for The Raven Locks Act I which is actually not officially authorized if I recall.

    They posted the artwork for Dead Horse a few weeks ago, although us fans are anxiously awaiting for the 1st 2 tracks that Neil and Kate talked about a few months ago (2 tracks in April).
