Frontier Ruckus, Hoots & Hellmouth

When: Sun., March 25, 8:30 p.m. 2012

Frontier Ruckus is one of many in a growing field of young, talented neo-folk groups, but what sets it apart from its crowd of cohorts—besides the fact that the Michigan-based quintet sports Ramseur Records' weighty stamp of approval—is the strength of frontman Matthew Milia's lyricism. Suggesting Dylan in approach and Jeff Mangum by his nasal warble, Milia's vivid, detailed imagery dominates his pastoral tales, which his bandmates accompany with low-key orchestrations of atypical instruments including saw and melodica. Just as capable of keeping it mellow, Philadelphia's Hoots & Hellmouth can also get considerably more rowdy with its roots rock. —Spencer Griffith
