In some ways a laid back version of the Alabama Shakes, The Futurebirds prove to be infinitely relaxed with a bit of southern grit mixed in. A distinctive, bright guitar tone is present throughout their music that contrasts interestingly with the hushed, throaty vocals reminiscent of Band of Horses, especially the track "Wild Heart." The band calls Athens, GA home along with R.E.M, the B-52s and The Drive-By Truckers. Hampton's Lullaby is available to for free streaming from their website but I posted it here for your convenience. Have to thank one of my friends for steering me towards the Futurebirds.
