The Coppertone Perform in the Back Yard

The Coppertone Perform in the Back Yard
The Coppertone dropped by the Exclaim! backyard and offered up an exclusive sneak peak at "Stranger Things," a new song they've not yet released. For knowledgeable jazz and blues fans, the influence of Fred McDowell and Robert Johnson will ring clear. They followed that up with a soulful "I Know the Dead," from their Hymns For the Hollow EP.

Exclaim! also had the chance to interview the Coppertone's Amanda Zelina, below. Check out the questionnaire, where Zelina discusses her collaborations with Dan Achen and Dallas Green, and what being labelled "blues" means to her.
