When I saw the artists that Rayland Baxter was likened to on Noisetrade, I stopped everything and took a listen. Houndmouth, Dawes, Paul Simon, The Head and the Heart, and Shaky Graves? Um, duh. And Rayland Baxter? Yes. Add him to this list. Listen to "Yellow Eyes," and you'll be on board too.
Rayland is touring with the one and only Grace Potter this fall, and though they're not stopping in the DMV proper, there are plenty of shows within driving distance. Road trip, anyone?
