The Twang-ucopoia (Balanced Diet) album is the debut release of New Copasetics. This project has been developing for several years, with a few personnel changes and honing of the musical directions, and is now ripe for release. This recording was done live in a Big Pink-style living room session, with minimal overdubbing highlighting the band's Roots Rock, Americana, Rhythm and Blues & Western Swing influences. (more below)

"... a healthy dose of Americana, soul and roots music in a melting pot of sound... the four-piece outfit specializes in male-female vocal harmonies sung over roots-rock rhythms.... recorded live in studio, and the result is an immediately catchy, often upbeat and sometimes even sublime mix of both originals and selected covers."
- Charlie Swanson, Bohemian Magazine

"Got some Stephen Bruton in you! ...really like your originals. Good album! Kudos!"
- John Allen Burtner, winemaker (TexSon/Tejano, Meeker), California Culinary Academy A.A., Former Bar Manager at Armadillo World HQ, Austin, TX

"AWESOME CD AND I'M ONLY ON SONG 8!!!!!"
- Ed Shulz, I.A.T.S.E Local 16 (sound crew / stage hand Union) Hardly Strictly Bluegrass crew

"...just jaw-dropping, gob-smacking, get-every-blood cell-dancing amazing!!!!"
- Kathryn Page, FASD Consultant, PhD

"It all sounds great .... Crazy fierce guitar!"
- Susan Scholz Hammel, Lead Vocalist, Wheatfield, the Hamdogs

"Roots rockabilly from a wily crew with a load of credits ... Whether kicking it out on originals or covers, they understand the genre and the groove and deliver accordingly and appropriately."
- Midwest Record Recap

"Album sounds great. Nice Job!"
- Mike Emerson, keyboardist for Tommy Castro & New Copasetics alumnus
