Fire Drill
Who said that good ol Americana rock couldn't come from the Northwest? Don't tell Seattle's Moondoggies because their debut Don't Be A Stranger is chock full of musically tight gospel, blues, rock and country tracks that showcase this young bands talents. The quartet bring it all together with killer harmonies that ooze their passion for playing. This passion quickly translates into addictive songs that I can only imagine get better at their live performances and makes Don't Be A Stranger a must for any straight laced American music fan out there!

Key Track: "Changing"

Band With Similar Fire: Wilco
