MP3: General Oglethorpe & the Panhandlers - "Red Hot" & "Sick Sick Lover"

When I first opened my email and saw a message about a band called General Oglethorpe & the Panhandlers, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I give pretty much everything an initial listen and decide if I want to continue learning more about the band. After I heard the song "Red Hot," I found myself interested.

General Oglethorpe & the Panhandlers hail from the South in Savannah, Georgia. In the email, their sound was described as polysyllabic folk infused with bright rock tempos, which is a new mix to me. The music is best to be called that and includes up two three person harmonies, horn, marimba & accordion riffs. The band expands on the normal folk style and updates it to their liking. It's not like anything out there and certainly brings something else to music. Listen and download  "Red Hot" and "Sick Sick Lover" below. You can pick up the full album, Whistle the Dirges, on iTunes here.
