I don’t think I’ve ever heard a band described as “a folk orchestra” that’s “a combination of depression-era rootsy swing and 60’s folk. Now I have, thanks to Venica, CA band Dustbowl Rivival .

I listened to this with low expectations, just because I thought it would be interesting but I ended up really enjoying it. It would go nice with a drunken bar scene in a movie. Also, that is definitely the coolest trumpet solo I’ve heard all year (I think that’s a trumpet around the 2:00 mark). I doubt you’ll ever hear something like this on MTV, but it’s a nice addition to your collection if you like unique music.
