Boise band Hillfolk Noir ain't no slouches. Since 2003, the band has recorded eight albums and shared the stage with everyone from Built to Spill to Neko Case.
That--along with the band's wickedly ragged old-time sound--is why Hillfolk was selected as one of the acts to represent the scene at the upcoming showcase of Boise bands at SXSW. Hillfolk booked shows all the way to Austin, Texas, and all the way back, including a stop at Maison on the world-famous Frenchman Street strip in New Orleans. You can help send the band off in style at The Record Exchange on Tuesday, March 6.
The group will be furthering its campaign of making everyone else look lazy by releasing yet another album, Hillfolk Noir Radio Hour, which is recorded to sound like an episode of an old-timey radio program.[ Video is no longer available. ]
