"Who's (your) Uncle Daddy?"
Turns out Uncle Daddy are TJ Stafford once again. Same talented group of musicians they've always been, though. From the band's Tumblr, timestamped June 2013:
We’ve outgrown our name. In lieu of going with just a symbol that I was actually pretty stoked on, we’ve decided to move forward by coming full circle (stay with me), and using my name. The band itself hasn’t changed, the music hasn’t changed outside of the natural changes that musical evolution brings, and the Uncle Daddy vibe you’ve come to know and hopefully love will continue to abide much as the Dude does.
One last thing HERC wanted to post before he sends this one off to the publisher, a stupefyingly good EP of covers the band released in 2012 including WTF?! takes on "Sabotage" by Beastie Boys and George Michael's "Father Figure". Other artists given the Uncle Daddy treatment include D'Angelo, Wiz Khalifa and the mighty Led frickin' Zepplin. If you're thinking Hayseed Dixie, all hillbilly and Hee Haw, think again. This is sexy and swaggering and sounds unlike anything else. HERC's looking at you Mumfords and Lumineers.
