Seldom-seen roots outfit The Betweeners are looking to resurface with a new album soon. Bandleader Stephen Couch reports that the group’s follow-up to its 2004 album Matador Karma has been “15 minutes away from being done for the last two years.” He’s finishing up nursing school but anticipates a May release, although “if someone handed me a check tomorrow, it could be done and getting duplicated in two weeks,” he says. The as-yet-untitled work was recorded in part at the home of Steve Cooley (The Galoots, Hog Operation); Couch describes the material as a departure from a previously overt bluegrass influence. Cowpunk confessor Shadwick Wilde and road heathens Dallas Alice help deck the hall. —Mat Herron
