The Danceably Distinct Folk Of Three Thousand Rivers

    The only genre of music to explode with the same immensity as EDM this decade is its spiritual opposite -- roots music. And as a native Southerner, I think that's pretty great. The problem though is that as when any genre gets big, derivativeness becomes a major problem. And then it becomes hard to distinguish between every band with a fiddle player and/or a steel guitar. Derivativeness is not an issue that Three Thousand Rivers faces.

    It's at least partially the presence of a funky-as-all-get-out saxophonist, but Three Thousand Rivers crossed the Rubicon of being just another folksy roots band to an act with an already established sound. We're premiering their track, "Body Aha," today which is a pitch-perfect example of pop-ready communal folk with enough of a deceptively danceable edge to make them stand out from the established Milo Greenes or Of Monsters And Mens of the world.
