From the Tap Room: These United States come highly recommended from the RANGE LIFE crew. They hail from D.C. but they sound like they fell out of the back of a turnip truck time machine!From You Ain't No Picasso: Rolling, garage-folk has never sounded so good. These United States sing a workman's song in a cubicle world, and pull it off better than most could hope to do. Elegantly plucked and strummed guitar parts match up like puzzle pieces against wisely under-used trumpet bits and a melody that recalls classic blues standards without aping them. Someone call M. Ward and tell him he's got an opener for his next tour.
