Born out of the humid Athens, Georgia, southlands, the music of Futurebirds washes over the ears like a welcomed rain. Utilizing pedal steel and a myriad of other instruments on their studio albums - the most recent of which is Baba Yaga, a tight, catchy collection - the band writes songs like action-packed dreams. Some even call their style “psychedelic country”. Not surprisingly, Futurebirds has played with the Drive-By Truckers and Widespread Panic, among others, and onstage the band often wears plain t-shirts, beards and mesh hats 'ta boot! Recently, the five-piece stopped by the KEXP to play a rollickin' live set before their show at Barboza. Watch their in-studio here:
