I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new album from American Aquarium and was an early sign-up to the bands Kickstarter campaign that launched back in November of last year, the album officially gets released on August 28th but I’ve being lucky enough to get a heads-up copy from the bands PR folks and I can report back it’s a real killer release and is bound to figure on the end-of-year best-of lists.
Those familiar with some of the bands earlier releases, all of which I heartily recommend (but if you have to pick one go for Dances for the Lonely) will know the band can mix it with the very best alt-country barroom bands, on this release though they distil the passion and pain, love, loss, the highs, the lows and in-betweens (tenuous link) of a band living the rock ‘n’ roll dream at the dark end of the street.
