Alt Country Jams – The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers, Fever Dolls, RED OCHER

The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers caught our attention with their new single Forevermore.  As their name suggests, the sounds trademark is the effective group vocal.  This down-home choir digs into the feeling, recalling Gospels influence on the Nashville sound.  The classic instrumentation includes a nostalgic banjo. 

The vibe is updated with an indie sensibility in the stomp and holler design known to indie folk breakouts like the Lumineers.  The masterstroke is in the presentations candid charm.  You can hear where it came from and what it took to get here.  And you know where its going.  Right to the top of the Americana charts.  The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers are a sure thing for a folk festival scene in need of deliverance.

Fever Dolls are sentimental on Hate Myself (for Loving You).  This classic reference dons new clothes on this alt country update.  We hear the indie country vibes of early Wilco mixed with the raw dive bar appeal of Shovels and Rope.  Its heard in the the polar voices and how their styles blend and compliment each other. 

The clever guitar fills uncover their understanding of the nuances and details that tag Americana.  They bring some respectable innovation to make this vibe their own, both musically and most notably in the vocal design.  That blend brings crossover potential, recalling the lofi indie rock tendencies of Dr Dog to match their Nashville intellect.

RED OCHER are infectious on THE OWL.  The track sucks you in with its dramatic groove and vintage stomp.  The chords are slightly familiar and nostalgic.  The contrast and updated evolution is delivered in the broken emotional vocal.  The singers performance is believable, ripe with vulnerability and real hurt. 

The adaption continues as the drummer picks up into a second level to match the singers emotional build.  The Owl is epic, the kind of trademark single to bring a crowd to their feet and pull them closer to the stage.  With Southern Rock influence to match its indie rock appeal we hear similarities to recent cult icons Delta Spirit as well as Band of Horses.
