Paging Dr. Demento: The Lords of Liechtenstein have a tender ballad for you.
It’s called Siberia, and well… we don’t want to spoil it for you. Just watch the video.
Brothers Dan and Noah Rauchwerk are to sweater vests what Michael Jackson was to white gloves. The Holmdel natives delivered two rollicking sets as openers for Christine Lavin at The Minstrel in Morris Township last week.
Let’s just hope that Dan and Noah never find true love. It would ruin them as songwriters.
Next up at The Minstrel: Singer-songwriter Ellis, May 3 at 8 pm.
UPDATE: People keep asking us about the origins of that LoL name, so we went to the source. For the record, Dan is a 24-year-old Rutgers grad and Noah, 18, is an NYU freshman. Dan replies:
The name resulted from an obsession that we’ve had with Liechtenstein ever since our dad returned from a trip to Western Europe in the ’90s and told us about the country. We think it’s hilarious that you can only buy a house in Liechtenstein if you already own a house in Liechtenstein, horrifying that women didn’t have the right to vote there until the 1980s, and downright bizarre that you can rent out the entire country for corporate functions. The place is just one big conundrum.
