The Langers Ball: The Devil or the Barrel

November 13, 2012

Devil or the Barrel showcases The Langers Ball mark (iii). Originally a two person due of Michael and Hannah the MN based Langers Ball released two fine Celtic-rock albums SHIPS ARE SAILING and AND AS I ROVED OUT then expanded to a full band for the live DRUNK, SICK, TIRED. The Langers then reverted back to mark (i) briefly before expanding back to a full 5 piece and picking some very fine musicians in the process including Mr. Drew Miller of BOLIED IN LEAD fame (and the Omnium record label that release the two Shite’n’Onions comps). The sound is certainly beefed up on THE DEVIL OR THE BARREL yet stays true to the original sound of the duo – high energy Celtic folk rock meets Americana – though if they consume the whiskey like the way the sing about it I fear the next Kickstarter project these guys run will be to pay for five liver transplants.
