Joey Farr & The Fuggins Wheat Band (say that one aloud in your best Matthew-McConaughey-from-"Dazed and Confused" drawl — get it?) specializes in funky, crunchy, amp-blowing blues rock with a heaping helping of dank-infused jamming. "Pumpkin Pie" is a paean to good-time gals. "Sugar Magnolia" it ain't, but it's probably most effective for getting those hips swaying at, say, George's Majestic Lounge or Chelsea's Corner Cafe in Eureka Springs. But the band can stretch out comfortably into other genres, as well. Exhibit A: the Latin-tinged "Moons Over El Salvador" or the electro-calypso "León Rugiente."

Check out "Pumpkin Pie" below:
