Musical Monday: Josh Roberts & The Hinges

This is an awesome band from Columbia, South Carolina that we saw at Smilefest. My show buddy group was not as impressed with them as I was, but they were my favorite of the weekend. Someone said they sound like Drive By Truckers, who are not really my favorite, but there was something about these guys that really struck me. I hope they make it big. I especially appreciated lyrics like, “We’re doing it slowly — sixteen months of foreplay. If we ain’t wound up by now I don’t know that we’ll wind.” And they did an awesome Blind Willie McTell cover that rocked my face off.

You can listen to my buddy Joel’s recording of the show here for free — look over on the left column where it says “stream.” Definitely would see these guys again!
