If you were wowed by the likes of Mumford & Sons last year, I urge you to check out Duluth, MN’s Trampled By Turtles. Drawing from the same well of Americana and folk influences (and with cooler beards,) this band has built a groundswell of support up over the past couple of years. I’ve seen them live twice in Boston-first at the Middle East Upstairs and most recently at the Paradise, where they rocked a sold-out crowd about as hard as a set of dudes with fiddles can rock a crowd.
Their new album, Stars & Satellites, comes out this April. They recently released the album’s first single, “Alone” (awesome), some tour dates (including another date in Boston-awesome), and a little featurette video that gives you an idea of their sound if you’re not familiar. Definitely worth checking out.
