The Wanderers / Blog

Review: September 2013

Austin Tx is renowned for it's title as the Live Music Capital of the world- And it's latest Indie Folk incarnation is a testament to the uncompromising artistry of Austin's local music scene. Armed with catchy melodies, 2 part vocal harmonies and unrivaled lead guitar passages, The Wanderers seed poised to not only catch fire in the local music scene but potentially lead the scene to new heights all-together. What's more is the unusual instrument configurations employed by the trio, including Cello, Harmonica, Slide guitar, Seven String Guitar, and an improvised suitcase kick drum/tambourine combination - which singer songwriter Boothe implemented in order to create a full sound without the need for a rock drummer. This combination creates a pulsating southern folk sound with an emotional force reflecting the recession era generations angst merged the innocence of youth with an unapologetic flare of hopeful redemption and road-humming glory that I find heartwarming- and frankly- damn exciting!
