Flannel Animal’s original songs are awkwardly situated genre wise somewhere between Neil Young with Crazy Horse and Hank Williams. The genre that people call Alt Country or Americana is perhaps where you might place them, but where one song might sound like a Neil Young folk song dipped from a whiskey barrel, another sounds like a stripped down country ballad on trucker speed, and then another like a moody rock song that never made the B side of a Creedence record. The way the boys of Flannel Animal see it is just it is what it is – us making songs we wrote sound as good as we can make ‘em. Bands and/or artists we are influenced by and which we may or may not sound like are: Neil Young, Lucero, Son Volt, Wilco, Slobberbone, Chris Knight, the Bottle Rockets, Steve Earle, the Jayhawks, the Drive-By Truckers, Robert Earl Keen, Joe Ely, Sons of Bill, The Backsliders, Two Cow Garage, Whiskeytown, and many others.
