New alt-country recommendations

I'd like to discover some new (for me) music that broadly falls into the alt-country genre. Any recommendations appreciated.

Re: New alt-country recommendations

If you're looking for some relatively sleepy alt-country, you might like The Western States.

http://www.myspace.com/westernstates

Time To Lose and Valemount are great tracks.

A band that did some opening for the DBTs. I don't have their album, but there's some stuff on their page that sounds decent.

Have you been introduced to Sarah Harmer or Kathleen Edwards yet?

Re: New alt-country recommendations

Dawes are somewhere in the rock/alt-country zone... album's good but they're even better live

I'm not familiar with Sarah Harmer at all. I've heard a couple of tracks from Kathleen Edwards and I enjoyed them.

Get You Were Here and go from there. You won't be disappointed; that one was going to be on my albums of the '00s list. I really like I'm A Mountain, which has more of a folky bluegrass feel.

Edit: Those are Sarah Harmer albums, btw. Not Kathleen Edwards.

Also, if you haven't listened to Deer Tick you definitely should:

and I saw Lissie open for Ray LaMontagne last weekend, and really liked her voice:

Re: New alt-country recommendations

Ooooh I love Deer Tick, it's just fun as hell alt/countryish songs.

I'm not so good as recommending stuff ...I don't know what is really considered 'alt-country' but I love and would recommend Lucero, Felice Brothers, Dexateens, Glossary, Ben Kweller & Cory Chisel!

I'd second Deertick. Their album will be in my top 10 this year.

Ok. So, I recommend all those bands too (except I'm not familiar with Glossary). I wouldn't really call any of them alt-country, though....which I why I didn't recommend them in the first place. Good call, though!

In the same vein as those bands is Alberta Cross.

I especially recommend seeing the Dexateens live if you ever get the chance.

Have you heard her stuff, Rob? For me, she was the boring part of the everybodyfields, so I haven't been that interested. If you say it's good, I might have to check her out.

Cheers plath, but I do have it plus I've got the CD on its way from Amazon. It's excellent, I agree. I've only listened to it once though, so I need more time with it.

Re: New alt-country recommendations

OMG, I'm giggling at all of our MySpace links in this thread.

Tons of great bands mentioned though.

And coincidentally, I just saw the Dexateens on Friday night. Still great.
