Banjos? Check. Fiddle? Check. Rollicking bass lines? Yup. From the band’s own website, “Wicked Shallows is a rowdy up and coming punkabilly band from Portland OR. Their music is the auditory equivalent of a cocktail happy hour on a 1890’s steamship crewed by outlaws.” An apt description. Three songs in and I’ve determined I will see this band live before I die. Stream their new album Parched Earth below.
