The Poor Nobody's is a local Minneapolis band, this is their first album (The Poor Nobodys EP). They play a variety of instruments, including the accordion, Wurlitzer electric piano, upright bass, violin, mandolin, acoustic & electric guitar, and occasionally a washboard. The vocals are compelling and unique, at times opera-style, at times in German.
Take a listen here, and if you're lucky enough to live in Minneapolis (or see them on tour around the U.S.), you'll be in for a treat.
