Tooth or dare

Northampton is the home of My First Tooth, and they're not the first band we've heard attempting to escape suburban large town ennui through the medium of Americana. Their emotional alt-folk/country takes the Wilco expansive route, lushly decorated with pedal steel, harmonica, horns and strings, fitting in just as well with the post-Neutral Milk Hotel party (Decemberists, Okkervil River) and topped by Ross Witt's yearning vocals. My First Tooth And The Rubies EP came out last month on Alcopop Records.
