With origins in Calhoun sister act The Lovell Sisters, the band Larkin Poe is now based out of Atlanta and delivers folk- and gospel-informed roots-rock that’s charming, soulful, accessible and personable. They’re currently opening up for former Bright Eyes guy Conor Oberst and are about to perform the same duties for Elvis Costello on a UK tour later this month. Catch Larkin Poe now at the 40 Watt before they move on to bigger venues; their tunes are at their best in an intimate club setting, where the person-to-person vibe of Appalachian folk shines brightest. Kin is the debut album and worth tracking down.
