Show Post: In House #1498
Now hailing from Brooklyn, the formerly Athens, GA-based Mendoza Line release their seventh full-length, Full of Light & Full of Fire today on Misra. The formula this time around is a familiar one for the band, with Shannon McArdle and Timothy Bracy again trading off on vocals and songwriting duties. The result is something like getting two completely different bands, with valid comparisons to be made to Bob Dylan, Chrissie Hynde, Harry Nilsson and 60's girl groups alike, depending where on the album one happens to be listening. The songs themselves tackle the big issues, mostly: love, sex, and politics-- and just in time for Thanksgiving dinner table conversation.
In House #1498.
Focus: New releases from the Mendoza Line, Full of Light & Full of Fire, and Okkervil River, Black Sheep Boy Appendix. Plus new music from Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, Andrew Bird covers Bob Dylan and more.
