EAST CAMERON FOLKCORE

"Well, while I am here I'll do the work -
and what's the Work?
To ease the pain of living.
Everything else, drunken
dumbshow."
-Allen Ginsberg

It really does take a village, or at least a northeast Austin neighborhood, to build a band. The ten (sometimes more)-piece folk-rock collective East Cameron Folkcore is proof. Pieced together out of a wide palette of talent from the neighborhood of the same name, East Cameron Folkcore creates its own brand of big, cathartic, rock-inflected folk music. -Paul Carrubba (kut.org)


Their debut record "Sound & Fury" was named #1 Album in the 2011 Austin Chronicle's Critic Poll, as well as their follow up EP "The Sun Also Rises" was named #8 EP of the 2012 Austin Chronicle's Critic Poll. The Austin Chronicle also named ECF one of the top ten local Austin acts of 2012.


ECF's newest record FOR SALE was featured by MTV Hive, AMP Magazine, American Songwriter, Austin Montly Magazine, Texas Music Magazine, Revolver Magazine and more. The release show for FOR SALE was a full-scale theatrical production in which ECF performed the album in its entirety to a sold-out audience at Austin's Scottish Rite Theatre.

PRAISE FOR FOR SALE:


"A celebratory madness - music against the system, with brain, heart and clenched fist." - Jorn Schlouter (Rolling Stone Germany - www.rollingstone.de)


"With the means of folk music and the power of punk, 'For Sale' is like a thunderbolt, that arouses and activates." - Westzeit 5/5 Points (http://www.westzeit.de/)


"A great record with an astonishing long-term effect." - Flight13 (http://www.flight13.com/)


"Exceptionally tense and dynamic, clearly political and dedicated." - OX Fanzine 8/10 Points (http://www.ox-fanzine.de/)


"Only rarely music goes under your skin like this." - SLAM (slam-zine.de)


"The 10-Track Salvo is pure folk, but it burns with the intensity of punk and the defiance of irish rebel songs. It's a monster sophomore effort." - Austin Monthly Magazine


"They are possibly the only band to site both Black Flag and Gustav Mahler as an influence." - American Songwriter Magazine (www.americansongwriter.com/2013/02/east-cameron-folkcore-for-sale/)


"You'll be a few listens deep when Moore's lyrics crystallize into something discernible and hit you like a bullet. These words are the chants of a disenchanted generation. Call it folk, call it rock, call it punk - whatever you call it, For Sale is an eye-opening sophomore effort from an up-and-coming Austin band." - Texas Music Magazine
