Spirit Family Reunion - "Wake Up, Rounder!"

Spirit Family Reunion is one of our favorite bands of the past few years, and they have a new album coming out on April 14. "Wake Up, Rounder!" is the first single, and it's exactly what you expect and want from them. They were the surprise hit of the 2012 Newport Folk Festival and played to a massive overflow crowd in 2013 at the Fort Stage. They have this fabulous downhome Appalachian style of folk, played with such an infectious love and joy that it's impossible to not get sucked in, unless you're missing a soul. In one of the more interesting pairings, Just Coffee Co-Op (the same company that makes the WTF Blend advertised on Marc Maron's podcast) has made a Wake Up Rounder coffee to coincide with the release of Hands Together.

Hands Together and Wake Up Rounder coffee will be released on April 14. To pre-order the album, go here. For more information on Spirit Family Reunion including tour dates (we simply can't recommend their live show more) go to their website. Right now the Bluegrass Situation has an exclusive stream of the album version of "Wake Up, Rounder!", but you can listen to a live version from 2013 below.
