You may also like bands like Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers, Richmond Fontaine, & Mumford and Sons.

There's videos for most of those and others here. http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...tml#post922506

I'm looking for some new bands that heavily use both banjos and fiddles. Lots of really good picking is the thing I'm mainly looking for. I don't know if I should post this here or in the indie section but, yeah.

I'm looking for a good album of traditional Chinese folk music, preferably just instrumental. The music can date as far back as the Han Dynasty, just want something well done and traditional.

Thanks if anyone recommends anything.

It can be self-righteous at times, but **** it, its country music. I dig this one.

I guess I'm posting this to myself but here goes



More punk spirit than half the **** that comes out with the genre label. Brad Paisley is the first guy who didn't make me think the whole genre hated Northerners.

This may be an odd request, but I heard a bizarrely "heavy" country song on the radio a few weeks ago and the concept just won't leave me. Do you guys have any suggestions for country bands that are on the heavier or harder side of things? As in, almost hard rock riffing, maybe combined with more stereotypical country instruments/vocal techniques/etc?

Avant-garde folk? Does this really exist? If it does, then can someone list me an artist or two? I mean I've heard of Psych Folk, Freak Folk, etc, but not avant-garde folk.

Well define heavier. There's nothing inherent within the genre thats going to require it to be light. I don't know of any Country that, say, Sabbath Heavy. And what sort of country did you want?

For people who don't listen to much country, almost anything sounds country with any amount of twang. But for those of us that do, Drive-By Truckers sounds, at best, half-country. So I don't know what you're referring to. If you know any lyrics and we can track down the song, I can give you a few more recommendations.

Uh well I'd think Devenda Banhardt would qualify. I don't know if I've spelled that correctly but it was a fairly explosive movement mid-to-late 00's. 2005-2008 maybe?

Try this and tell me what you think.



I couldn't find the album version, so this isn't going to sound as "freaky" as it does on the studio version, but I'd say you won't waste your money if you download the entirety of Cripple Crow. I'd up it for you but I don't have a CD-Rom right now.

Neither can I, but I know a band that was "Mutt Lange" heavy - The Outlaws.
