Today’s Free Download – Oneside

oneside.jpgNot a download (RealAudio stream), but one of the most interesting alt-country bands I’ve seen in a long time. Electric banjo – need I say more?  It’s a video of a performance given at the Kennedy Center, almost an hour long.  Check out their MySpace site for studio tracks.

They’re steeped in bluegrass traditions, but they can dish out neck-snapping progressions and time signature changes, and really lay down some blistering grooves.  It’s high voltage Americana that never rips the roots from the soil.

Oneside plays Proctor Academy in Andover, NH September 11, Salt Hill Pub in Lebanon September 16, and the Heritage  in Charlestown October 14.
