Description

Inspired by the music and aesthetic of the film O Brother Where Art Thou, the Tumbleweed Wanderers wade knee-deep into old timey territory with string-driven tunes, banjo licks and saloon-style piano plunks, but they don't get stuck there. Instead, they venture across genres and decades, sounding at times like Crosby, Stills and Nash and at other times, more akin to Fleet Foxes. But just when you have them pegged as an indie, roots-rock ensemble, they bring the funk; dropping R&B numbers that bring to mind the gems of 1960s soul. The potential for over-hyping aside, this young band captures some of the finest elements of radio-era popular music.
