The Twang-ucopoia (Balanced Diet) album is the debut release of New Copasetics. This project has been developing for several years,
with a few personnel changes and honing of the musical directions, and is now ripe for release. This recording was done live in a
Big Pink-style living room session, with minimal overdubbing highlighting the band's Roots Rock, Americana, Rhythm and Blues & Western Swing influences.
Hear some samples!
