He’s My Brother She’s My Sister is like a time warp to the golden present, wrapping nostalgia around the here and now with throwback flair and good taste. They make debauchery and estrangement so glamorous. The songs are as catchy as a radio pop jam, but throw off the trappings of plastic pop and wrap you in fur, folk, and the last drops of moonlight. (LA Record, February 24, 2010)

[Their] voices mingle like glamour in the desert” and serve up “party music for coyotes drunk on champagne,” (LA Weekly).

“Their mojo (has) the power to heal the afflicted” (LA Deli Magazine).

He’s My Brother She’s My Sister seem to invite a broad range of colorful words to describe their music and performances: “flamboyant folk,” “psych-acoustic,” “estranged and glamorous” and “vaudeville-y,” with “alleyway rhythms,” and “earthy swagger.” No doubt this is due to their mélange of musical styles, both modern and antique; their eccentric attire and sense of expression, that is both sincere and theatrical; and, their unique instrumentation, which includes a rhythm section bolstered by a tap dancer.

The band’s infectious rhythms and high energy make the sounds come alive and cause even uninitiated crowds to erupt in dance. Their songs ring like pop classics in a modern framework. It is a recipe that has quickly gained the band a devoted following in their hometown of Echo Park and the surrounding LA area, and that following has spread to every town the band visits.
