Camden, SC duo The Mobros is, at least in numbers, a stripped-down outfit. But brothers Kelly and Patrick Morris conjure vast worlds of sound with their rootsy, rocking music, which hints at Delta blues and ’60s soul without kitsch-ing too far down either rabbit hole. Much of the group’s aural mass lies in its powerful but playful vocal harmonies, which it uses to near-perfect effect on its debut LP, Walking With a Different Stride. (The Mobros are no strangers to Athens; that album was tracked at Chase Park Transduction.) I’m inclined to say these fellas are the real deal. Like The Black Keys without the obsessive hero-worship, The Mobros offer a taste of yesteryear that still smacks pleasingly of today.
