about

The Muckrakes CD, "Pill Shaped Void" contains 12 songs of innovative music that's was sonically produced at a time when the band found itself at a crossroad. The recording offers a taste of banjos, acoustic guitars and other folksy sounds from The Muckrakes previous efforts but increasingly finds the band punctuating their tales of wanderlust, heartache and life’s uncertainties with piercing electric guitars, spacey keyboards and a muscular rhythm section.

Pigeonholing the backwaters of South-East Virginia, fitting The Muckrakes into any one genre is a difficult task because they meld so many vibrant instruments into a heady mash uniquely all their own. The band was formed after a lengthy search for like minded folks to create original roots inspired rock music and underwent changes before finally finding their notch with music that can shift to quiet and reflective to foot stomping and rambunctious, sometimes pure and innocent, and sometimes dark and moody. This is a rock band with bluegrass guts, ragtime legs, folk sensibilities and a dash of the blues for good measure.
