The Vegabonds @Barrelhouse South

NASHVILLIANs The Vegabonds call their sound "New South Rock." It’s fitting: while there are certainly Americana and Southern Rock influences steeped strongly in their music, there’s something decidedly "now" about the pop-rock they’re creating via narrative lyrics and slick production.

2016’s What We’re Made Of is brought to life with piano strains, tasteful guitar leads and country lilt. ‘70s-style organ electrifies traveling songs like “Blood to Roam,” while the band shows its softer side on songs like “Take a Ride,” where gentle piano and guitar picking cushion Allen’s vocals.

Songs like “Oh My Lord” tackle loss and coping mechanisms with harmonies and lead singer Daniel Allen’s vast, roughed-up voice. It all falls somewhere between The Black Crowes and The Allman Brothers with some ‘70s-stadium rock magic.

Concord, North Carolina’s The Kodiak Brotherhood join in the fun with their brand of alt-country.
