Shakey Graves – Roll the Bones

You don’t normally hear of a lot of original-sounding bands coming out of Austin, in fact Texas as a whole tends to follow the same twangy style of country lines. That was, until Shakey Graves. Instead of going the whole looping route that you see a lot of one-man bands doing, Shakey Graves decides to play everything at once. Using his guitar as both a bass and a main guitar line and each foot working a different percussive element, he’s able to establish a sound by himself many bands take at least three to achieve. Take a look at a live video for his song “Roll the Bones” courtesy of the Good Music Club.
