Since 2005, the St Louis-based quintet Kentucky Knife Fight has been steadily carving its niche in the grittier subsections of Americana and blues. Punk, alt rock, and bluegrass combine in a sound that oozes with sultry, riff-heavy dueling guitars and vocals charred and cracked like the walls of a cheap motel. "Hush Hush," the band's latest album, is a ten-piece suite that introduces listeners to a host of characters just long enough to make the encounter uncomfortable--there are seedy cross dressers, criminal fathers, and families slowly fracturing. Kentucky Knife Fight will open for the blues-rock quartet Charlie Patton's War.
