Default Artists similar to 16 Horsepower?

I just came across them and I'm really, REALLY diggin it. Very excited to be delving into the general area of Bluegrass/Country! It seems to be the one broad genre of music I haven't found much enjoyment in and this amazing band has changed my mind.

Not very familiar with it overall... but I'm looking for the whole, 'dark and insane' tortured vibe that 16 Horsepower seems to have. I also like that their songs I've heard so far (the whole Sackcloth 'N Ashes album) tend to have a slower, almost avant garde tempo instead of the upbeat or country romance sort of mechanics that I've come to associate with most country music.

Any recs with this in mind are greatly appreciated! I can't post links yet as I'm new here but 'Black Soul Choir' by 16 HP is what I'm lookin for more of in a nutshell.

Loathsome Pete`s epic thread might be what you`re looking for, Carpe. In fact, I`m pretty sure that 16 Horsepower turn up there somewhere:-

Nice song you mentioned, btw; I just found it on youtube:-

You`re welcome! There are plenty of recommendations in that thread. Watch out for O`Death and Munly And The Lee Lewis Harlots - they were my favourites.

So, need more recs for something different... I've always been a Ravi Shankar fan and wanna get more into Indian music, especially based around the sitar.

Don't even know what else to ask for, surprise me! Sitars and wobbling vocals would be great. Don't know where to start.

^ Yes, that`s a beautiful song from a band I`ve never heard of.

This band may also be new to many; Dando Shaft were the underdogs of the British folk revival, consistently overshadowed by more commercially-minded bands, but as I hope this clip demonstrates, they had their moments (mostly notably on their self-titled album imo):-

Can't go wrong with Slim Cessna's Auto Club



Nor can you go wrong with The .357 String Band

Couldn't agree more on the .357 String band recommendation.

I can't yet post links, but perhaps Jayke Orvis?
