On Radar: Vast Atlantic & Musikanto

My favorite music genre resides somewhere near the nexus of rock and country. A musical space inhabited by the likes of Neil Young, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Kathleen Edwards etc. As much as I like those artists it's been awhile since they have recorded something interesting, so recently I went on a search for some new music.

Vast Atlantic the first band I found is almost local (The OC). They describe themselves as the illegitimate child of Wilco, Bright Eyes, and Ryan Adams. They're a relatively new band that will improve, but they're solid now. You can listen here Vast Atlantic

Musikanto hails from Chicago, but plays in the same country/rock territory. You can check him out on his MySpace page.
