Best Music Poll 2013

BEST ROOTS ACT: The Mallett Brothers Band


This BMP favorite has been hard at work in 2013 — touring extensively, releasing a new album (Land), and recording several tracks with a Grammy-winning Nashville producer. The tracks on TMBB’s most recent offering ”alternate between boozy and anthemic ballads and boozy and anthemic sing-along stomps,” Phoenix writer Sam Pfeifle said in his review. Indeed, this six-man ensemble, fronted by Luke and Will Mallett (whose father David is the well-known folk-singer/songwriter), seems to place equal value on nostalgia and fun, which translates into an enjoyable listening experience whether you’re alone in your car or stomping along at a live show. Speaking of which, they’ll play unplugged at the St. Lawrence Arts Center on Friday, December 27. It’s a great chance to catch this energetic group in an intimate setting. |

Runners-up: Ghost of Paul Revere, Toughcats, Dark Hollow Bottling Company
