Preview: Houndstooth Bindles at Cafe Bourbon Street

By Columbus Alive
From the January 12, 2012 edition

Hillbilly music comes in all stripes, from glitzy Nashville country to stark “Deliverance” folk. Though their screaming fiddles are no stranger to melody, Houndstooth Bindles keep it raw.

That mostly works out swell for the Columbus quintet, which will celebrate the release of its self-titled EP with a show Friday at Cafe Bourbon Street. Raucous energy runs rampant through these six tracks of twang with a bang. The roughshod quality only becomes irksome when the dual vocalists hit a sour note, though that probably won’t be much of a problem amidst a clamor of clinking bottles and stomping feet.

The Wayfarers and Allie and the Redbuds will play, too.
