When a band names its album after a phrase from a Mark Twain story, you know they are bound to be very interesting :)
OK, so some of you probably discovered the Felice Brothers a year ago but I heard them for the first time only a few days back and was deeply impressed by the singing and the lyrics. Some lovely roots-rock from the region that gave us "Basement Tapes", though the band categorically denies ever having heard that album.
Download "Run chicken run" from this blog to hear what I am talking about. (Look for the "exclusive download" link on the left panel on that blog.) You can also listen to (and download) "Penn Station" here.
