A Canadian "avant-country" act with a cult following up north that's just starting to tour the U.S. regularly. Haunting, weird stuff.
Ted Jones and the Tarheel Boys
One for the traditional bluegrass crowd, Ted Jones looks like a cross between Hank Williams and a young Lyle Lovett. The bandâs music is similarly displaced in time.
The traditional music Los Cojolites playsâknown as Son Jarochoâis full of finger-picking and foot-stomping. The Veracruz bandâs jams combine Spanish and African traditions, and itâs infectious stuff.
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Actually a formidable buzz band in their native U.K., Kitty, Daisy & Lewis play raw, jazzy rock reminiscent of all those slicked-hair dudes who died in plane crashes when your parents were kids.
Reverend KM Williams
Southern gospel blues played on a one-string guitar. âNuff said.
