Local string band Frankenpine owe their name to the creepy faux-pine-tree cell phone towers that dot the highways of our increasingly 1984-ish Twenty-First Century.  But these young, handsomely dressed pickers are more than just a clever moniker.  Their recent album, "The Crooked Mountain," ventures a ways from tried and true bluegrass melodies towards a jazz-influenced country landscape that even Gillian Welch fears to tread.

"A first-rate Cajun and Country band" -- The New York Times
Nashville, Tennessee's Cajun honky-tonkers, the Doc Marshalls, have recently veered away from traditional Americana and Louisiana rhythms in favor of crooked, glimmering folk reminiscent of Bonnie Prince Billy, Phosphorescent, and A.A. Bondy.  Their upcoming CD, "Look Out, Compadre," uses lush choruses to sing tales of last stands, exploding houses, love gone wrong, and the calm that forgiveness brings.

Alana Amram & the Rough Gems' latest release, "Painted Lady", is largely a family affair, with mom, sister, and father (prominent jazz composer, David Amram) in tow. Rounded out by a cast of first rate local performers, the Rough Gems are a versatile vehicle for her most country-influenced effort to date. Amram's jangly acoustic guitar and reverb-kissed melodies recall the best elements of the Byrds-era California country rock.
