old smokey
The Artist: Old Smokey, a quintet comprised of some of Athens, Georgia’s most out-there musicians — including members of The Olivia Tremor Control, Circulatory System,  Ham1, The New Sound of Numbers and Vic Chesnutt’s band.
Fun Fact: They’ve been accused of sounding “like a marching band from Mars.”
The Album: Wester Easter, out today.
Liner Notes: “Old Smokey plays beautiful, psyched out compositions by way of traveling fiddles, wavy banjo plucking and trance-like rhythm that pulls you down into their own special hypnosis,” says Jim Willingham, who handles banjo and vocals.
