Anti-Social Music - Sings The Great American Songbook: MAGNET Jan/Feb 2006
If Yo-Yo Ma and Ian MacKaye scored an Alfred Hitchcock film, Anti-Social Music might sleep through it. After all, this New York City collective—comprising musicians from bands such as the Hold Steady, Ida and Songs:Ohia—basically already channels that collaboration on Great American Songbook. Imagine an orchestra wearing formal attire and combat boots, then replace the conductor's baton with a bottle of Jack Daniel's.
