Root Hog's debut, Root Hog streets 9/15/09

Lafayette, IN band Root Hog’s debut self titled album, Root Hog hit the streets on September 15th, 2009 following a packed house performance at West Lafayette’s Riverside Music Center.  The debut album is available at all Root Hog shows, local record stores, and select online outlets.  The album contains 10 new original tracks, and showcases the band’s roots and blues style dubbed “Cosmic Americana”.

Root Hog formed in 2008 and almost instantly became hometown heroes, emphasizing the importance of supporting live music.  The band has spent the last year playing different venues and festivals throughout the Midwest, as well as sharing bills with many great Midwestern acts.  The band took part in Purdue University’s Summer Concert Series, the 14th Annual Indiana Microbrew Festival, Lay Flats Music Festival, and Wuhnurth Music Festival.

The debut album, Root Hog, contains all original material and shows the range and capabilities of the 5-piece band while still maintaining the solidarity and flow of a great album.  The album, produced by Mass Giorgini, contains everything from the good vibes of “Feelin’ Good” to the jazz-infused “La Pistola” which features an addition of flugelhorn provided by Ross Huff of The Macpodz.  From the heart-wrenching “Wait and See” to the dark country tune “Sad But True” to the blues-funk of “Peaches”, the band shows their ability to be diverse and at the same time hone a cohesive sound.
