NXNE Artist Preview: The Driftwood Singers

Every once in a while a band comes along that doesn’t sound of this era, and The Driftwood Singers are one of those kind of bands. They’re based out of California and their 2010 record Look! sounds like dusty nuggets of gospel influenced folk that was lost in a time capsule until being released last year.
Their songs are hauntingly melodic, and although the production is decidedly lo-fi, it only adds to their charm in my opinion. They have garnered some comparisons to the Carter Family, which definitely makes sense upon listening to their stuff. If you like the album — streaming now on Bandcamp — then you’ll want to check them out at The Central on June 17th, 9pm. Their two-piece harmonies totally sound like something that you’d want to experience in a live venue to me!
