The Damnwells - Air Stereo

I want to tell you all about a Brooklyn band, The Damnwells, that released their most recent album all the way back in August. But the album is so 'damn' good that I have to share it with our CSVMAD readers.

The Damnwells are unique to me in that they have pretty wide appeal. From the presentation of the record, one might think that The Damnwells is a band with some serious rock capabilities. And they somewhat deliver on that front. But every song seems to be tempered by a modest, raspy, mild-mannered voice and a wise, understanding guitar. The Damnwells's style is like trucker-stop music meets avant-gardist lyrics.

Words not enough to convince you? Well, take a listen to "Golden Days", which gets digested like a Crosby, Stills, and Nash tune. It's a song that reminds one of monday morning classic rock and sunday afternoon football. If that doesn't do it for you, try listening to "Louisville" (shout out to my buddy Slossy who reigns from the great city of Louisville). The track is all about nostalgic love and reminiscing over a lost relationship. Some how, some way, The Damnwells seems to make the idea sound new and original.
But the album, Air Stereo.

Listen to "Golden Days" (4.75/5)
