[Jun 23, 2012] Deliverance: Sparrow and the Workshop + Min Diesel (Banchory, Aberdeenshire)

Recommended Posts

Sparrow and the Workshop are a three-piece based in Glasgow consisting of Belfast-born, Chicago-raised Jill O’Sullivan (vocals, acoustic guitar), Welshman Nick Packer (guitar, bass, basstard) and Scotsman Gregor Donaldson (drums, vocals). The band's debut album Crystals Fall was released by Distiller Records in 2010 to critical acclaim, with the likes of Drowned in Sound and Clash Magazine awarding the album 9/10.

The band is notable for their use of harmonies and bastardized instruments/FX pedals and they have been compared to bands as varied as Jefferson Airplane, Talking Heads and Black Sabbath.

Support comes from Aberdeen's Min Diesel, purveyors of mindie rock. Sounding a bit like Joan of Arc, Dinosaur Jr and your favourite american alternative bands from the 80's but grounded in the north-east of Scotland. Expect intricate guitar and a big fuzzy chorus or two.
