They're rowdy and rough. They're flag-waving country punks with swing-a-billy boots stomping the floor. Imagine Zac Brown at a Pixies show or Dwight Yoakam dueting it up with the Arcade Fire. There are so many influences in The Underhill Family Orchestra, it's as if they pulled a little something from every nook and cranny in Miss Liberty's kitchen, including the kitchen sink. They play with such high-energy, it's like they are trying to entertain all of America from their back porch in Mobile, Alabama. And don't tell them they can't do it, it will only make them play louder, faster, and with more spirit than Thomas Jefferson wearing an American flag tuxedo. And, if you spill your beer from dancing too much, you won't even care.
Their second album is set to be released in December 2013, with an extensive tour of the Southern states. For all of us on the West Coast who will miss their rambunctious good time (for now), we'll have to settle for debut album, "This Is..."
Purchase and preview, their debut album, "This Is..." and their new single "Showdown at St. Lawrence" over at their Bandcamp Page.
