WILD CHILD -  http://www.wildchildsounds.com/

"Bands like Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's She and Him have graced iPod and Volkswagen commercial soundtracks and created an industry of cute, with precious, jazzy vocals and delicate acoustic backing bands. At first listen, Austin's Wild Child, with its sweet vocals and ukulele-driven acoustic music, falls solidly into this category. Listen closer, and things are much darker, and funnier, than they seem. Wild Child's debut album is among the more interesting material to come out of Austin lately." -Austin Statesman

WHISKEY SHIVERS - http://whiskeyshivers.com/

Hatched in the twilight months of ought nine, these five young men came from all corners of the US looking to do one thing: knock the dust off roots music.

A freewheelin', trashgrassin', folk tornado, the Whiskey Shivers take traditional instrumentation, soak it in gasoline and send it into outer space. Breakneck speeds, killer grooves and impeccable musicianship: it's enough to make Bill Monroe himself do a double-take as he spins in his grave.

With upright bass, fiddle, washboard, banjo, guitar, and reasonably priced merchandise, Whiskey Shivers adds a fine layer of grit on top of the hard-driving rhythms of traditional bluegrass. They've been called everything from "trashgrass" to "hardcore roots" to "crazy-assed redneck music"  whatever the words, the meaning is the same: Whiskey Shivers brings the house down.

All sales are final.
