After seven years of relentless touring throughout the United States, Europe and the U.K., The Hackensaw Boys are being recognized as one of the most exciting groups on the diverse Americana music scene. The group’s second release for Nettwerk Records, Look Out, represents the recorded culmination of the Hackensaw’s unique vision: a celebratory but defiant sound culled from old-time mountains, backstage doorways and punishing drives through the evolving American landscape. Aside from a tendency to say stupid things while drunk and an inability to effectively employ punctuation and a deep appreciation for the tragic history of the American South—they've been featured in the Oxford American Review! Check out the 2007 Southern Music Issue, featuring a compilation CD with "Look Out Dog" and a great article by Geoffrey Himes, who says of the boys, "Even when this Charlottesville band employs ancient Appalachian motifs, they never pretend to be something they're not." If you've got a yen for the early 20th century--that is, if you prefer a jaunty Joplin rag more than Jay-Z's new "American Gangster" CD--check out One Dollar Hat, old-timey wunderkinder.
