If you're a fan of alt.country acts like [mp3com-artist]Wilco[/mp3com-artist], the [mp3com-artist]Bottle Rockets[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Two Cow Garage[/mp3com-artist], you'll want to dig into the country kibble of [mp3com-artist]R. Mutt[/mp3com-artist]. Twenty-year veterans of the Marquette bar and club scene, R. Mutt started their career playing the likes of the Stones and Dylan and the [mp3com-artist]Beatles[/mp3com-artist] before settling into the classic Americana sound you'll find on their four self-released albums. "94 Steps," from their latest release, Heptane, is a gentle ballad that reminds us a little of [mp3com-artist]Tom Waits[/mp3com-artist]' "Ole '55" blended with the Colorado country melodies of [mp3com-artist]John Denver[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Dan Fogelberg[/mp3com-artist]. With new guitarist Dan Power, formerly of [mp3com-artist]Blue Utah[/mp3com-artist], the band is in the studio with a new release planned for 2011.
