THE BUCHANAN BOYS

This year has been the year for local indie-rockers Antique Firearms. Actually, the musicians have only been a band for about a year, but already they’ve released a substantial EP, developed a noteworthy atmospheric sound and headlined a local showcase at The Orange Peel. The smart, sonically intriguing quintet is made up of three brothers Dotson and two brothers-from-another-mother. reverbnation/ antiquefirearms.com

Sylva’s Buchanan Boys make country for those who appreciate the bare necessities. Their nononsense songs feature working men who strive to remain good at heart in the face of toil and strife. The band’s music is an apt complement, fitting acoustic strums with dreamy slide guitar and electric riffs with a relaxing melody. The Buchanan Boys’ songs search for the beauty in everyday life. Their economical approach to country is a musical extension of that mission. thebuchananboys.net

Country meets Southern rock in Blackberry Smoke. And with its denim-and-long-hair aesthetic and sibling musicians (the rhythm section is the Turner Brothers), the band recalls the Allman Brothers of 40 years ago. In a good way. Ironically, Blackberry Smoke first found fame in the North and is now working to win over the South. blackberrysmoke.com

CRAZYHORSE & COLSTON Local hip-hop duo CrazyHorse & Colston (Max Hupertz and Bryan Godleski) was named among the best hip-hop groups of 2011 in Xpress’ Best of WNC readers’ poll. The duo’s new album,

Backroads & Bonfires, draws on influences including rock, blues and country, and taps guest artists such as Don Lewis of bluegrass band Sons of Ralph and members of reggae group Common Foundation. reverbnation.com/ crazyhorseandcolston

DAVID MAYFIELD PARADE David Mayfield is the supportive big brother who helped little sis (and Bele Chere alum) Jessica Lea get her first record to Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach. Mayfield (who’s also been a member of Cadillac Sky and is pals with the Avett Brothers) leads his own dynamic folkrock band The David Mayfield Parade. That band is, by the way, trying to raise cash for a sophomore album. If you like what you hear, contribute to the Kickstarter fund. thedavidmayfieldparade.com
