Found out about this band from my inbox. I guess my blog has hit the point where I can count on a steady amount of daily e-mail from bands, promo companies and labels telling me about new bands that I never would have found. Its great, keep it up. Doesn’t mean I’ll like everything though.
I do like Child Ballads though. This four piece is led by Stewart Lupton, former singer for Jonathan Fire*Eater, another band I know little about other than it was the beginnings of this band. Expect a debut EP from this band in April ’08.
If you have a min, go to their myspace page to download Blackbird Trax, something people are starting to describe as ‘ragged folk’. Here is Cheekbone Hollows. Reminds me of the Stones a bit, anyone?? Here’s the video.
