A greyhound (the dog) is sleek and fast. A Greyhound (the bus) is more of an underdog — not to mention a vehicle of subculture and necessity. Greyhounds (the band), from Austin, Tex., are sleek underdogs with more swagger and style than either of their namesakes. Guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell call their sound “Hall and Oates meets ZZ Top” — a bizarrely perfect amalgam of roots rock, soul, retro cool and thick groove. Trube and Farrell are also members of JJ Grey & Mofro but have been been performing as Greyhounds since the late ’90s. Their new album, Accumulator, with contagious tracks like “Lone Rider” and “You’re Gone,” sounds as fresh as it is masterful. The band plays The Grey Eagle on Tuesday, Dec. 2, at 8 p.m. $10 advance/$12 day of show. thegreyeagle.com. Photo courtesy of the band
