Former Flat Duo Jets mainman, Dex Romweber, continues his back-to-basics rock ‘n’ roll with his sister Sara in the Dex Romweber Duo. The Romwebers blast through a set of primal rock tunes on their latest album, Is That You In the Blue?, which just recently released via Bloodshot Records. Romweber has been working this musical template for many years and it’s clearly been influential as any listen to a White Stripes record will prove. The new video for “Jungle Drums” was filmed upstairs at Marsh Woodwinds in downtown Raleigh, NC by Jerry Stifelman (Creato Destructo), and accompanies the debut single from the band’s recently released aforementioned album. In addition to the video, Dex and Sara stepped off on their US album release tour last Thursday, in Charleston, SC. We have listed the complete set of performance dates below.
