Margot and the Nuclear So and So's
I heard Margot and the Nuclear So and So's on one of WOXY's Lounge Acts broadcasts. Margot and the Nuclear So and So's are an eight-piece out of Indiana. Their LP The Dust of Retreat is based upon the musicians imaginings of how Greenwich Village might have been in the 60's. The result is an album of stories set to pop-folk music that is punctuated by horns, layered guitars, and a melodica for good measure.
