- Hyemen & Metalfunkel are Sean R. Ferguson and Andy Wagstaff, playing folk versions of all your metal and hard rock favorites, from Motörhead to Judas Priest. They really can pull off the gentle spot-on vocal harmonies of Simon and Garfunkel. This is equal parts soothing and hilarious. LIsten here.
- Then there’s Brooklyn honky-tonk hooligans The Dixons. Their label, Cow Island Music, calls them “the most authentic Bakersfield style country band since The Derailers.” Dan Ferguson of Freight Train Boogie says they’re “rooted in a classic country sound chock full of pedal steel that drives or cries with the song subject matter, plenty of twangy guitar, and a burly-voiced lead singer in Jeffrey Mowrer who’s got an Ernest Tubb flavor to his voice.” You will definitely feel like you’ve stepped into a Buck Owens song, so bring your cryin’ eyes, your dancin’ boots and your drinkin’ hat.
