Here's one they made earlier...,
This review is from: These Were the Earlies [Limited Edition Digipak] (Audio CD)
For a moment, contemplate this: two guys from the musical backwaters of Burnley, Lancashire (UK) have some new and wonderfully twisted ideas on how to put an album together. They're halfway (or so) there with the songs, but something's missing. Ever ones to embrace the rapidly changing technology of our world, they put what they have recorded out there, into the musical-ether, on the internet. It's worth a shot, see what comes of it. And what comes of it, I hear you collectively cry? Two geezers from Texas (the place, no the blinkin' band!) pick it up, and 8000 miles away say, "Hey, we love this, man; let us get involved!" So they did. And this is the result. Part ranch-music, part cotton-mills. Part Fort Worth, part pint of Worthingtons. Part Beach Boys, part Northern Boys. Truly beautifully harmonic, properly crafted songs, with weirdy-samplery-trickery and organic instruments. This is only half of what they are capable of achieving, and if you even slightly like this album, YOU HAVE TO SEE THEM LIVE. I guarantee my friend (and you must be one of my friends, if you're still reading this), you'll be blown away. All the way to San Jose.
