Recently named Best Nashville Band of 2010 by the reader’s poll on The Deli, The Apache Relay has been turning some heads lately. Their a band of great guys who make complex and moving indie folk/ Americana music. Although American Nomad has yet to hit shelves (release date coming soon), you can find a few of there excellent new songs on their myspace and facebook pages. “Power Hungry Animals,” and “Can’t Wake Up,” are particularly engaging songs, each building Arcade Fire-esque guitar and string arrangements on top of a rustic, country tinged foundation. If you have the opportunity to see these guys on tour, do yourself a favor and take it – the excitement that comes from listening to their recorded material is matched ten-fold by their energetic live performance.
