Frontier Folk Nebraska (Cincinnati)
Great songwriting is at the heart of Frontier Folk Nebraska’s greatness, but the band’s songs, particularly on the great new Frontier F**k Nebraska full-length, are delivered in such a way that the music seems to hover, whether the band is going full-throttle Rock & Roll (as it is on most of the new album) or showing ethereal, rootsier elements (as it did on 2009 debut, Pearls). Whatever alchemy the band members are using to create this cool audio hallucination, it gives its music a magical quality. FFN is one of Cincinnati’s best.
