San Fermin is unlike the typical band in a number of ways: There are eight of them most nights, and their musical direction comes not from the singer or guitarist, but from mastermind Ellis Ludwig-Leone, who composes San Fermin’s intricate music. The band has been endlessly compared to both The National and Dirty Projectors, both of which are fair but sort of incomplete. Here, the band gives the full treatment to Stealers Wheel’s 1972 hit “Stuck In The Middle With You,” a song probably best known as the soundtrack to a forceful ear removal in Reservoir Dogs. San Fermin’s latest album is Jackrabbit.
