I saw this two-person band open for Shakey Graves at a sold out show at the Hi-Dive in Denver last Thursday. The gentleman on guitar and vocals is Franklin Russell Hoier and the madam on percussion is Moselle Spiller. Together they are Crushed Out. Great sound.
Wikipedia describes The Stepkids as Psychedelic Soul. I got the opportunity to watch the documentary Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton yesterday and have been inspired to do some digging into the legendary record label Stones Throw. I have started my search with The Stepkids who signed with Stones Throw in 2010. Check out this great video for their song “Legend in My Own Mind” from 2011.
Been listening to a lot of Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside lately. They’ve been around for a handful of years starting up in Portland Oregon and have really captured a swinging 50s rockabilly sound. Apparently lead singer, Sallie Ford is the daughter of a famous puppeteer named Hobey Ford. How bout that?
