Sound description: With influences as diverse as Bob Dylan, Radiohead, and the Beatles, The Hoagland Conspiracy employs harmonica, guitars, and steady drumming to create infectious music that compels you sway back and forth, eyes closed with a smile on your face. With a hint of a southern drawl, the lead singer’s pleasing, relaxed vocals make for easy-listening tunes along the lines of Phish. -The Indy
RIYL: Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Todd Snider
