A couple of pretty good releases from UK bands were added today.
First off is the self-titled release from the Irish band Turn. This one is highly catchy and melodic, with the standout tracks being "It's About Nothing" and "Sorry's Just a Word". I hadn't listened to this one for a few months, but when reviewing the samples, quite a few of the tunes came back to me, a good sign. You can stream a few tracks from this one (as well as a few from their previous releases) in full at their site.
The other is a 2003 release from Minibar, Fly Below The Radar. Of course, that was exactly what this release did. Nevertheless, it's quite a solid one; Minibar may be British, but they have an American roots rock sound to them, in the vein of The Wallflowers (two of whom produced a few of the tracks), Counting Crows and Tom Petty. Apparently Pete Yorn and Jakob Dylan are big fans of the band as well.
Yum! Two more tasty CDs for my wish list. Thanks again for a great blog, Steve. Great resource. I stop here first these days when I'm hungry for new stuff.
