Paste lists '12 Arkansas bands you should listen to now'

Paste 50 States Project

Stupid, lazy lede ("I know what you’re thinking: 'Music from Arkansas? It’s got to be just a bunch of hillbillies singing through toothless mouths and stomping bare feet.') aside, it's a pretty solid list that includes a lot of bands the Times has championed: 2012 Musicians Showcase winners The Holy Shakes, 2010 winners Brother Andy and His Big Damn Mouth, Bonnie Montgomery. Huge omissions: Tyrannosaurus Chicken, Velvet Kente (Amasa Hines makes the cut), 607, Rwake, Iron Tongue, The See. Also folks who've been doing it for a minute: Isaac Alexander, The Boondogs, Kevin Kerby, The Salty Dogs, Greg Spradlin. Etc.

Who else?
