Purple Church - Woodsporn/Hayseed EPs


Indie

Stephen Carradini
I hadn’t even heard the “Woodsporn” EP before I was impressed with Oklahoma City band Purple Church, because anything that comes handnumbered, hand-printed and sporting a mini-zine (complete with fold-out mini-poster!) as liner notes is pretty impressive.

Got milk?

It's a milkshake of bluegrass, classical and jazz.


Music
