Evan Murdock and the Imperfect Strangers are pleased to announce the release of their sophomore album, Animals. Striking a sharp contrast with their previous work, Feel Bad No More, the new record is grittier, louder, and more experimental, but maintains the same honesty and authenticity that has defined their sound from the beginning.

The band has been entertaining fans in and around the Madison area for 7 years, and shows no signs of slowing down. Animals stands as proof that they remain dedicated to musical innovation and experimentation a fact that will surely remain true as the band continues to push the boundaries of Americana music.


Starting out as a few guys who just wanted to play some Flying Burrito Brothers tunes, the Driveway Thriftdwellers have emerged as a top original act in Wisconsins Country and Americana music scenes.

Named 2017 WAMI Country Artist of the Year, the Thriftdwellers have toured the past year in support of their critically acclaimed debut album Cutover Country, named a top 10 Milwaukee area album of 2016 by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel declared the Thriftdwellers' 2017 Summerfest performance a Best Of performance for the festival, and called the band a must see live act for Summer 2017.

"Emotionally ripe, old school country." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"Like a vintage yard sale that Merle Haggard might have thrown." Isthmus.

"Rugged, straightforward country songwriting." Tone Madison.
