Futurebirds' Southern Rock Is Back And As Good As Ever

Why don't we ever hear anything about Athens, GA, unless it's specifically related to the music scene? Athens -- the home of alt-rock legends R.E.M. -- is a hotbed of alternative musical talent, but that's the only thing I know about the city. Maybe, that's enough? If it is, we can thank contemporary bands like Futurebirds for keeping the myth of Athens alive. The Southern rockers have shared the title track to their new House Parties EP, and it positions the band as a fun mix of classic Southern country rock ala The Band with touches of Southern folk ala CSNY, and as someone who rocks Music From Big Pink on a regular basis, I'm all about it.
