Mezcal Aces, Manky, and Joseph Kojima Gray
Someone described Mezcal Aces as sounding like REM meets Dinosaur Jr., ladle in a bunch of blues and that's probably pretty close. Manky is the magical punk/country/gypsy co-musication of Julie Bruce and Jason McAlister. They are both intriguing and lovely. Joe "Koj" is the fearless leader of 50-Watt Heavy and plays in many other rock & roll and Americana bands. His voice is like a beautiful and powerful eagle of love. And he is a great hugger. Cute too. Hold me.
