Aaron Sprinkle + Jesse Sprinkle = Blank Books

Watch below Jesse Sprinkle create the drum part for his brother's Aaron's song. This is pretty exciting, as it is the first time they have worked on a full length album together in 13 years (?). The band name Blank Books is a little too similar to the existing band Black Books in my opinion, but I do like the concept behind it (and it is much better than "The Sprinkle Brothers"!).

Jesse Sprinkle is potentially my favorite drummer of all time; his parts are just so unique (and can best be heard on any Poor Old Lu album, particularly "Sin"). And the song (which begins around the 2:00 mark) is terrific, and is a great return to rock'n'roll after Aaron's good yet bizarre electronic album a couple years ago.
