thosedarlinsFriday music time! This week we’re starting the Random Ten with a band I found out about last year and got to see live last weekend, called Those Darlins. The best way to describe them, really, is that they’re a really fun hybrid between country and punk. The three women in this band, Jessi, Kelley and Nikki Darlin, have one of the most unique sounds I’ve ever heard, and I fell in love the instant I heard them. So we’ll start with a few songs from the band, then hit shuffle on the iTunes machine, see where we are ten songs later, etc. More videos after the jump! [photograph of Those Darlins by Veta&Theo]
