We play original hard acoustic roots music that people can dance to—what we call Pulp Americana. By this we mean a modern interpretation of roots music, in which we focus on songwriting, harmonies, acoustic guitars, mandolins, banjos, drums, bass, washboards, bodhrans, resonators, and concertinas. Our music is an amalgamation of genres, drawing from old timey, blues, polka, jazz, vaudeville, rock & roll, and country. This style of agglomeration music has a rawness and vitality reminiscent of early 1920-40s blues and dancehall music (e.g., Charlie Patton, Howard Armstrong, Yank Rachel, Woody Guthrie) as filtered through a dissonant alternative rock lens (e.g., Wilco, Civil Wars, Tom Waits).
