My Cousin Recommended and Reminded Me

O'Death is a band out of New York, who it seems have created a new genre called, "Folk/Metal". This labeling reminds me of when the Avett Bros. were being called "punkgrass". These guys are a bunch of crazy bastards who say they sound like "...steam train, wet soil, bad dog, dried blood, knock kneed, blackgrass, rickety fence teeth, men with beards." They've been around since 2004 and have 3 albums to their credit. 2007's Head Home, which holds the track "Down to Rest" featured in the playlist, and 2008's Broken Hymns, Limbs, and Skin have been their breakthroughs. Some tour dates close by:
Feb. 7, 2009 - One Eyed Jack's - New Orleans, LA
Feb. 9, 2009 - Bottletree - Birmingham, AL
Feb. 10, 2009 - Mercy Lounge - Nashville, TN

Also, I almost forgot about Yeasayer since their "breakout" in 2007 after their SXSW showing. Anyway this band toured with MGMT and had a hell of a song, added to the playlist of course, called "Sunrise". Check it out and look for their new album out Feb. 9.
