Edie Brickell & New Bohemians / Hunter and the Dog Star
Edie & New Bohemians returned in 2018 with an album called Rocket (I confess that one passed me by) and so this isn’t actually their first album for decades. Brandon Aly (drums) and John Bradley Houser (bass guitar, woodwinds), Edie Brickell (vocals, guitar) are still the core members and are joined by John Walter Bush (percussion), and Kenneth Neil Withrow (guitar).
