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.
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:
Here’s two from their debut About Leaving avaialbale on their website for $10.
