Okay, sorta new music. The record came out in September.
Glasvegas, a Scottish band that is making waves across the pond in the dear old UK, have just begun to make ripples here in the US. Discovered in the same bar as Oasis by the same guy who discovered Oasis, they thankfully sound nothing like Oasis. Combining uplifting, anthemic, guitar-driven pop/rock with the Glaswegian, Bono-esque vocals of frontman James Allan, the band has found an excellent sound that virtually guarantees that they will make a splash when their current tour hits stateside in January of ’09. Unfortunately, they will not be swinging through Austin, or anywhere near for that matter. Their New York, LA, and Boston shows are already sold out, but tix are still available in Seattle and Portland, so check ’em out if you’re int he Pacific Northwest.
I won’t comment on the fact that a band called “Glasvegas” is not performing in Las Vegas. How sad.
