The Hiders' frontman, Bill Alletzhauser, describes his band's style as "Gillian Welch meets Black Sabbath." Others call it "slow-burn Americana." No matter the label, the group continues to make jazz- and blues-infused folk music that's won it many fans in the indie-rock world.

The Cincinnati band's sophomore album, Penny Harvest Field, is an intriguing Americana mix, but with a heavier-than-usual emphasis on rock and psychedelia. It echoes with the influences of Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, Son Volt and Elliott Smith. In a session with host David Dye, Alletzhauser describes the "bat cave," his basement studio where the band rehearses.
