On ‘Thank You I’m Sorry’ the trio known as The Crooked Brothers embellish their rootsy folk music with the more urban sounds of rock, blues jazz and funk. These “rural” and “city” forms of music form a sort of dichotomy which is best illustrated by contrasting the song “Organs on Demand”, with its urbane spoken word poetry set against a funky blues rhythm, to the likes of “Kennedy”, with its acoustic folk guitars and down home steel guitars.
