Dustbowl Revival + Shook Twins

Score: 0

The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and soul music band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, prewar blues, and roots music into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal.

Dustbowl just recorded their fourth studio album with Grammy Award–winning producer (Old Crow Medicine Show, Dropkick Murphys) and Flogging Molly founding member Ted Hutt, scheduled for release on Signature Sounds this summer. While the band launched with a deeper bluegrass roots and old-time style (a fateful Craigslist ad got it all started), it recently moved toward a more modern soul sound, still with the mixture of New Orleans swing, Americana, a little blues, and roots-rock. The soul-dipped first single of this new collaboration came out on a 45-rpm record with a music video at the end of 2016 and a premiere on Relix magazine’s website.

On their 2017 extended play (EP) record 2, critically acclaimed Idaho-born and Portland-based indie band Shook Twins draw on the inherent power of the group’s namesake duo—identical twin sisters Katelyn Shook (vocals, guitar) and Laurie Shook (banjo, vocals). In early 2017, the pair holed up alone in a room with just two voices and two instruments and cut the seven-song collection live to tape, serving up bare-bones renditions of fan favorites, covers, and one new tune entitled “Safe.”
