3 Feet High & Rising: Band of Bearded Brothers Cellar Door Moon Crow Unleash Rollicking Single "Whistler" from Upcoming Blues Rock EP (Bandcamp, self-released)



British Rock 2-piece band Cellar Door Moon Crow mysteriously found and Followed The Witzard (@SharpCheddar856) on Twitter a few months ago. Their Facebook About section simply lists a brief, yet fitting, mission statement:
"Band ~ Beards ~ Brothers
Goodwin brothers Phil & Tommy.
Sheffield, UK"
and their accompanying Biography section contains a similar refrain: "Band ^ Beards ^ Brothers," as well as their Bandcamp page. There really isn't much else to be known about twin brothers Phil & Tom Goodwin, aside from the fact that they make infectious, down and dirty Rock "N" Roll—all entirely written, recorded, produced, and mixed in-house by Cellar Door Moon Crow (CDMC) themselves. CDMC's Bandcamp page often tags their musical output as "British Rock, Rock, Blues Rock, two-piece band, Sheffield" and I would best liken their sound to a stylistic mix between The Black Keys, Third Man Records founder Jack White, Icelandic Rock band Kaleo, rising Austin-based Blues Rock guitar virtuoso Gary Clark Jr. and Stone Temple Pilots. Cellar Door Moon Crew's latest stand-alone single, "Whistler" is their fifth release, which will likely all be compiled onto an eventual EP to be released later this year. "Whistler"'s companion music video was produced by CDMC, recorded at Fat Elephant, and directed by Loki Films; it's a bit of a scantily-clad affair, due in part to tatted Punk Rock Go-Go girls and an aerial aerobics routine taking place atop a dimly-lit, smoke-filled concrete concert space down below. "Whistler," which is delivered in a kind of fast-paced sung... almost half-rapped manner, quite similar to fellow countrymen Arctic Monkeys, is currently available for FREE download from Cellar Door Moon Crew's Bandcamp page, along with "Forgiveness," "Tightrope," "Backlash," and a rather interesting Led Zeppelin/Sia mash-up cleverly titled "Zepia."
