Colorado quintet Elephant Revival deliver a rootsy groove containing elements of gypsy, rock, Celtic, alt-country and folk with a progressive edge.
“Elephant Revival serenaded the crowd with arabesque melodies, harmonies and rhythms that braided and coiled into a sublime aural tapestry. Their instrumental dynamics, verse, and even the harrowing story that inspired their appellation, invoked the majesty, mystery and sorrow of Mother Earth.” - Gratefulweb.com
Birds of Chicago is a collective based around JT Nero and Allison Russell - two of the most compelling new voices in American Roots music today. Nero's fractured country-soul voice wrapped in Russell's silver and gold tones is a fine thing. Not too perfect, not at all saccharine, you'll hear echoes of mountain gospel, street corner doo-wop, classic soul.
