Local alt-folkers The Tisburys‘ new EP Crooked Roads is quite the feat, combining soulful folk writing with the fun instrumentation of indie rock to create a big band sound perfect for a classic summer cookout.

The band (which, disclosure, features The Key’s Tyler Asay) kicks things off with an ominous organ on the title track blending into a danceable confusion of “where to go in life,” as a vanilla piano keeps things classic. (Also, Matt Schenkel, thanks for the handclaps.) “Heart of Chrome” throws a little southern rock into the formula creating a Frankenstein monster of epic rock and folk proportions. “The Fallows” closes the record on a very epic note, making this six-minute profound ballad a chance for the band to show off how damn good they are, making even a flute feel at home amongst classic rock instrumentation.

Crooked Roads is pure Americana, a feel-good, spacious-skies-and-green-grass type of soundtrack I will be blasting on every camping trip I endure this coming July.

Listen to the EP below (and download it for FREE on Bandcamp), and come hang with the band as they celebrate the new release at Ortleib’s on Saturday; tickets / more information can be found here.
