Thanks to bands like Mumford and the Lumineers, it's easy enough these days to be weary of bands sporting wide-brimmed hats and boots, offering bundles of songs lazily lumped under a stretched-thin Americana flag.

At first glance, the Wild Feathers don't exactly challenge that image. The group's debut self-titled full-length, though, is a surprisingly nuanced take on the whole southern-fried indie-rock bit. The Wild Feathers at times sounds a little too nostalgic, like the five-piece wrote the album on a road trip with a Tom Petty cassette stuck in the deck, but it's clear that the boys know enough about songwriting to hook a listener.


Jamestown Revival, despite claiming on their website that their music is "a movement," sound back-porch authentic - which is probably a phrase they would use, but whatever. Saints of Valory makes music that will probably end up on a car commercial, and their power pop sound makes them kind of an odd duck on this bill, but they'll deliver on energy, at least.
