HILLSTOMP

Portland Oregon junkbox blues duo HILLSTOMP is infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp. North Mississippi trance blues, a bit of Appalachia, and a dash of punkabilly come clanging and tumbling from assorted buckets, cans and BBQ lids, all drenched in rambunctious slide guitar. Somehow it works.

Despite their homemade instruments and novel approach, Hillstomp is no novelty act.Hillstomp's memorable live performances tap into a magic that cannot be rehearsed, converting outlaws and traditionalists alike from skeptics into preechers. This has been witnessed in most of the 50 states as well as England, Ireland and Italy. Denmark and Ireland, we're coming for you again soon!

After two widely-acclaimed studio albums, the band hopes to capture some of that live energy on a new album titled After Two but Before Five. The album was recorded live recently on two nights in the Northwest.

T SISTERS

Oakland's T Sisters tap into a tradition that hails from folk's deepest roots -- sibling harmony. As with bands like The Pointer Sisters, The Roches and The Wood Brothers, a transformative resonance rings out when the Tietjen sisters join their voices together. Songs read like short stories or stage plays, embracing a theatrical sense of rhythm, imagery and movement within their sassy narratives.
