Norfolk and Western

Norfolk and Western is a Portland band that is new to me, but one that has been around for a while. It has featured M.Ward, Rachel Blumborg (former Decembrists drummer) and other back up members to bigger names on its various albums. It's a community project in many ways. An American Broken Social Scene (though not quite the same sound.) They do create a really cool sound though, what with the banjo, accordion, trumpet along with all the basics. Here's two tracks off their CD, "The Unsung Colony", released in 2006.

Barrels of Fire

The Rise of New Labor
