Robert Ellis handpicked these fellow Texas troubadours as one of his first production projects, and it's easy to see why: their "trashgrass" string-band sound chops away at traditional bluegrass constraints with a mischievous cleaver, mixing in shadows of Delta swamps and New Orleans basements, always favoring emotive experimentation over precision. The result, their self-titled LP (out September 23rd), drives hard with the fierce inertia of Old Crow Medicine Show, the ramshackle folk punch of Felice Brothers and the punk energy of a pre-sobriety Deer Tick. — Marissa R.
