this band kind of amaze me, I've searched all over the Internet and it's like nobody has a single bad word to say about them. don't get me wrong, they're not full-on offensive to my ears, but seriously they come across so damned earnest. it's sickening.
it's like a horribly forced public school version of grizzly bear or something. that's not a dig at the middle classes either. just compared to some decent Americana this just comes off like listening to 'scarborough fair' on repeat.
I predict that within 12 months every coffee table in the land will have seen the underside of this album, they will have done TV appearances on loose women and Paul o'grady and half of the people who like them now will claim they never did at all
