Formed by the luck of the draw during a Rock Lotto event in 2010, a moody mixture of Krautrock and surf guitar lines, this acclaimed local trio now features Josie Davis on bass, Michael Harl on guitar and vocals and Mark Hutcherson on drums. Harl describes this song via email as coming together during the height of last year's political campaign barrage and Occupy movement. "It evolved into a commentary on our current political system that is fraught with personal agenda driven politicians and voter apathy," he writes. "It's a wake-up call for fellow citizens to pay attention and make efforts to gain control of a country that is spiraling away from the needs and calls of its people and to treat each other with the dignity and respect we all deserve." You can catch the band April 30at Fallout with Mutwawa and Gilmore Guys, and May 15 at Strange Matter with Broken Water. — B.B.
