Ark: Dustbowl Revival

Venice (CA) Americana ensemble whose music started out as a blend of bluegrass, jug band music, and Western swing that has evolved in a roots rock direction. American Songwriter finds their latest CD, Is It You, Is It Me, "ensconced in a cleaner and expanded, if still slightly retro, pop sound that recalls early Buckingham/Nicks Fleetwood Mac, especially through the vocals of front people/co- founders Zach Lupetin and Liz Beebe." Opener: Smooth Hound Smith, the East Nashville-based duo of Zack Smith and Caitlin Doyle that uses foot percussion, complex finger-picked guitar patterns, harmonicas, tasty harmonies and a lot of tambourine to create a brand of Americana roots music that No Depression calls "a raucous clash of backwoods folk, raw blues, and underground rock." $25.
