#17 Oakley Hall - Gypsum Strings

I first discovered Oakley Hall when I saw them opening for Calexico a few months back. They were an alt-country band in their truest form, but could get pretty loud and psychadelic up there on stage too. I picked up their album, "Gypsum Strings, " their second 2006 release and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed seeing them live. Word is that this album is a bit louder and more riff heavy than their previous work, which is straight forward alt. country. Regardless, this album gets a nod from me as one of my favorites of the year. Sample a couple of tracks below.

  • Oakly Hall - Living In Sin In The USA

  • Oakley Hall - Spanish Fandango
