Presenting...The Dawn Chorus
Apologies to anyone who's been looking here and wondering where the posts have been this week...there's been way too much work to do, and there've been a lot of CDs dropping on the mat at 17 Seconds Towers and emails and mp3s...I'm working on it. Promise. So there will be a fair few posts over the next few days.
Anyway, one band I've been meaning to post on for the last few days are the fantastic English five piece The Dawn Chorus. Hailing from the English south coast, they have released three 'well-received' (as they say) EPs and are now set to release their debut album The Big Adventure soon. I think this will appeal to fans of bands like British Sea Power and Brakes (or BrakesBrakesBrakes for US readers) and the comparisons with Wilco and Bright Eyes are also quite accurate too.
For their early stuff investigate Downloads here, from their web page, and for two tracks off their latest single try these:
The Dawn Chorus -'The Hope will Kill Us.' mp3
The Dawn Chorus -'Heart Of Hearts.' mp3
The band are playing live in the next few months, check their mySpace for details (and maybe they'll get further north than London. Please!!
As always, please let me know what you think
