Country posturing and vocals full of faux-twang have made themselves staples of many indie artists and bands over recent years. And while this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it can definitely come across as a bit inauthentic at times. So, it's always refreshing when someone like Amy LaVere comes along, who with one song can easily convince you that she's the real deal. Born in Louisiana and now calling Texas home, the singer/songwriter writes music that drips with soul and recalls classic country artists as well as smokey, female jazz vocalists of the first half of the 20th Century. LaVere's stand-up bass playing carries many of her songs, but her band is completely up to snuff, fleshing her tunes out with tasteful arrangements. LaVere has appeared on several late night television shows in recent years, and was even awarded a chance to record a session at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.

Inspired by a fiery combination of heavy metal and Latin rock, Rodrigo y Gabriela has created a sound so truly unique that it could only have stemmed from two seemingly incompatible genres. Known for their quick paced playing style, two acoustic guitars are all this Mexico based pair needs to create a monster sound. Rodrigo Sanchez utilizes insanely fast finger picking while Gabriela Quintero layers multiple beats on rhythm guitar, producing a full sound without the help of a drummer, bassist, or any synthesized sounds.

Fusing classic rock, punk and country folk, hardcore band the Meat Puppets was the longest-lasting of all the bands on the 1980s seminal hardcore label SST. Centered around the duo of Curt and Cris Kirkwood, the Meat Puppets played music that was always smart, tuneful and true to its hard rock roots--even when the band experienced its brief flirtation with the mainstream in the early 1990s, largely a result of its friendship with grunge kingpins, Nirvana.

Los Angeles-based girl group, Dum Dum Girls, is essentially a modern lo-fi version of The Ronettes. While this was the image the group initially strove for, the four young ladies have since attempted to broaden their sound and improve their dexterity on their respective instruments. Though it has seen members come and go - including those affiliated with Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, La Sera and Grand Ole Party - Dum Dum Girls still manages to produce catchy, hook-filled pop, bolstered by a live show that includes band members wearing complimentary costumes.
