Riot Folk!
« on: June 19, 2006, 02:12:55 am »
Finally found a good term for one of my favorite genres of music. "Riot Folk!" Check out http://riotfolk.org/ which is a little more "activist" than I usually listen to, but a good example of the genre, with free/legal downloads!

Here's a couple of my favorites so far.

Other bands that I think have a similar sound would include The Mountain Goats, Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel, Modest Mouse, Idlewild, Iron & Wine, etc.
