The Wilders are just another bluegrass band from Kansas City. Then again maybe not. They sent their music to a blogger so they’re not luddites by any stretch. They’re booked by the best outfit in the country (Billions Booking). And they’re a bunch of young cats with goatees, cowboy hats and western garb. So with all of that going for them let’s hope all their dreams come true (perhaps getting signed to Bloodshot, Hightone, or Rounder).
The new record, Throw Down, came out April 25. And there’s a ton of great music on there. It’s split about 50/50 between instrumentals and songs with vocals but there’s quite a variety of waltzes, honky tonk, traditional bluegrass and even a little blues. Pre-order the record here from the band.
