The recent surge of hipsters turned cowboys – looking at you, Edward Sharpe wannabes – should take a hint from a long cool woman named Margaret Garrett. Slinging a slick electric guitar and battery-powered amp, Garrett provides vocals to Mr. Airplane Man, a female duo hailing from Boston, Massachusetts. Alongside drummer Tara McManus, Garrett is known for a visceral fusion of punk rock and dirty Delta blues that’s similar to Jack White’s minimalist sound in De Stijl. (Not coincidently, Garrett and McManus hit the road with the White Stripes in 2001.) Today Garrett croons numbers like “Tell Me Baby” with a subtle twang that’s not brazen enough to alienate a city slicker’s ears. She pays a visit to Southtown’s Lowcountry with the cosmic sounds of Flower Jesus as she plays her way across the nation.
