A rock band without a drummer, a bluegrass band without a fiddler. To the gentlemen of The Dead South, a self-styled 4-piece string band from Regina, Saskatchewan, it’s about how, not what, you play. The Dead South’s combination of cello, mandolin, guitar and banjo has all the hallmarks of a group tuned to bygone times, but The Dead South find distinctly modern bathos in this old time rigging.

On their third album, Sugar & Joy, The Dead South tell stories of desperation and bad decisions in fast-paced, brightly-laced bursts. The title, Sugar & Joy, was selected in the band’s style of pulling a lyric from their self-identified “weirdest song on the record” (in this case, the Gashlycrumb goth of “Fat Little Killer Boy”).
