Moviola and friends

Found the Columbus, Ohio band Moviola through a No Depression magazine review. They’ve been together 10 years , put out six records and done split singles with everyone from The Handsome Family to Cobra Verde.

Their website describes them as playing “dusty country-through-a-space-echo, folk soul and adult lullabyes.” This is a very accurate description and places them firmly in my territory. Their new record is called East Of Eager on Anyway Records. Here’s a song from that new one and a couple from the back catalog.

Turns out Jake Housh from Moviola is in another band with his brother Josh called Catalpa Boys, they’re also on Anyway Records and also have a song or two to sample.

Josh House is in a third band, a San Francisco band called Our Lady Of The Highway with one record out and a second waiting to find a label. They’ve been named Best Rock Band for 2004 by The East Bay Express. Any record execs out there should listen to these songs from their finished yet unreleased record:

    I’m really glad you featured Catalpa Boys and Our Lady. I’m really good friends with Josh and Dominic (singer songwriter for Our Lady). I blogged about Our Lady way back. Just criminal that these guys don’t have a deal for record #2. If you’re interested I can get you a couple of tracks from their upcoming record “Beauty won’t save us this year”, it’s really good. More poppy and uptempo than About Leaving and a little less alt-country but still really strong.
