Turntable & Fiddle

In the mail, I recieved I small package that contained a CD. When I opened it I was surprised to see the a EP from Battlestar America. I wrote about their album last year. For whatever reason, they sent me a free CD with six new songs on it.

Battlestar America is a mix of honky-tonk and rap, mixing turntables with fiddles. When you read about it, it sounds weird. When you hear it, it sounds great. They seem to be calling themselves B Star now. Their old site is still up at Battlestar America, so I'm a little confused as to what exactly is going on.

Give it a listen. I'd recommend Bootleg Dreams, Someone Like Me, and Yellowbelly. You can listen to the whole album on their site.

Trust me, once your hear a few songs, you'll be hooked.

Interesting sound... but too political... and a little top socialist. They even sell their music on a site that claims "No Microsoft products were used in the creation of this website."

No problem with that, (ASP.NET is good product though)
but if they really hate the 'corporate music world', Commercial software, etc. they should just post those MP3 out there and stop trying to sell them... lol

"Take me home, Country-Thug roads..."

Bill Monroe was Gangsta Folk Music in 1939.

They tell me "All music was new, once."
