"...Fresh off a CMJ showcase in New York City, politically-dissenting hard folk ensemble East Cameron Folkcore has returned to the big red state in the thick of election season...."
"...Welcome to the tale of how East Cameron Folkcore – the sideline bums, the bad news bears, the cursers of disgust – began an amazing journey that’s landed us on another continent, and me in a German town called Wiesbaden, leaned up against a graffiti mural depicting Jews being cattled onto trains during World War II, while staring at the smokestack of an insane asylum where Nazis experimented on people. We enter this story on the wings of Fortune, put into motion by our departed comrade and brother-in-arms we miss dearly, Mr..."
"...East Cameron Folkcore packs a powerful punch. Thursday night, it packed the White Horse despite the rain..."
"...Once again, East Cameron Folkcore holds up a mirror to society. Melting ice caps, Middle Eastern children covered in debris and blood, police at war with protesters, the gray clouds of pollution, and media misinformation; it’s a blooper reel of man’s relationship with the Earth and, in effect, our ties to one another...."
"...East Cameron Folkcore has been on tour in Germany for 11 days, and, collectively, we’ve long since stopped trying to remember which day of the week it is. We now tell time by cities, venues, or what the crowd in either of the two was like..."
"...East Cameron Folkcore plays every show as if their lives depend on it. The Austin eightpiece unleashes a galvanizing force that’s part social protest, part cathartic release, part celebratory anthem..."

"...Despite this deep-rooted transistor legacy, the band's clever songs and exquisitely layered arrangements are pure present tense. Rumbling across the plains like an infernal haboob, East Cameron Folkcore amplifies and agitates the Americana paradigm with sheer sonic squall on The Sun Also Rises..."
"...Our friends at Beauty Ballroom are hosting a bona fide event to raise money in support of breast cancer research, coinciding with the grand opening of a yummy new trailer joint in front of Beauty Ballroom, Johnnye’s Soul Food. We will enjoy acts from Austin-based folk pop band Baker Family (12:00), local pop indie One Hundred Flowers (11:15), Harvest Thieves (members of East Cameron Folkcore and Guns of Navarone) (10:30), rock-and-rollers The Early Stages (9:45), Amor Negro (9:00) and Fine & Dandy (with Kate & Andy) spinning hot tunes for us all night long..."
"...6) East Cameron Folkcore, "Sallie-Mae"..."
"...I'm not talking about cousin sex, but rather the way all three local bands on the bill shared musicians. The family ties began with Clem's other band, East Cameron Folkcore, which, with two members absent, performed as a slimmed-down octet..."

They’re joined by established acts (Los Lonely Boys, Amy Cook), up-and-comers (Wild Child, East Cameron Folkcore), and a few that warrant a wealth of national attention (Shakey Graves, Ume, Whiskey Shivers)...."

"...East Cameron Folkcore, whose brand of existential protest rock is still ringing in my ears a year after they quietly disbanded, isn't exactly reuniting tonight (Thursday) at the Hard Luck Lounge.
