The New Familiars have long been local legends around Charlotte and for good reason. They are first and foremost a rock band. but there’s just enough mandolin and other bluegrass/twangy elements to their music to make it “southern” and there’s more than a few head nods to country music. You might think of them as The Band for the 21str century, but I don’t think The Band ever rocked this hard. Their latest CD, Between The Moon And The Morning Light takes a lap around the infield, tagging all the bases of a southern rock album. The highlights for me are  “Icaraus,” “New River,” “Wait,” and “All In All.”
