On the Oneside

If you're looking for a healthy dose of indie-Americana-Bluegrass (if such a genre exists), you'll be more than satisfied with First to Last, the debut release from Boston based foursome Oneside. The album heavily features banjo driven tunes that will make you think the group hails from someplace much further south than Beantown. If you're a fan of Crooked Still or other neo-roots groups, Oneside will slide into your musical collection nicely.

If you're so inclined, the band will be playing at the Nor'easter Festival in Plymouth, NH this weekend on Saturday the 27th. The fest is a combination outdoor / music / conservation smorgasbord. Besides some great music by bands including Oneside, Tapes 'n Tapes, State Radio, and others, there will also be some rock climbing clinics and a competition at the sport climbing cliffs of Rumney. The album hits shelves on the 30th, but this will be a great chance to hear some of the new songs live, and I'm guessing you'll probably be able to buy an early copy at the show.

Visit their website, their label BOS Music, and become their friend on MySpace.
