This month's featured acts:

 

 
Sammo
The Flanks
Alex Battles &
The Whisky Rebellion

In 2009, Sammo recorded and released Vagabondage, a collection of mutated Americana with a pop bent, recorded in his Brooklyn bedroom studio, Le Flatbush Boudoir. Vagabondage is currently receiving national and international airplay on Internet and radio. Sammo is currently in the throes of a love affair with his National Steel guitars.

“The Flanks just blew my mind. They play this old-timey, country-folk music complete with guitars, harmonica, fiddle, upright bass, and some of the most beautifully sung harmonies I've ever heard. One of the most wonderful shows I've ever seen.”
-Brooklyn Vegan

"Rollincking."
-The New Yorker

"Clad in trucker's hat, brandishing a legal pad full of just-finished lyrics, and a drawling, lazy voice, Alex Battles can wrap audiences around his knotty fingers."
- The Village Voice

"Battles serves up a sly, catchy mix of old-fashioned country songs."
-Time Out New York
