- "Wasted Time/Everything Is Okay"
From Johnson City, Tenn., come the contemplative, achingly beautiful harmonies of The Everybodyfields. Founding members Jill Andrews and Sam Quinn, who began the group alternating electric bass and acoustic guitar, are the band's primary songwriters. They recently filled out their haunting alt-folk with the addition of Josh Oliver on piano and electric guitar, as well as Thomas Pryor on pedal-steel guitar.
"Wasted Time/Everything Is Okay" is a medley included on the group's latest full-length, Nothing Is Okay, The Everybodyfields' first with the full band. After the track, Sam Quinn lamented that "we're not going to match the energy of 17 Hippies" — referring to the high-powered Roma musicians from Germany who'd preceded the group on stage. The band's creative energy, however, remained in abundance.
