Los Lonely Boys – Forgiven (rock)
This is a good rock-and-roll ride. Hendrix-inspired guitar work, with spot-on vocal harmonies, and an occasional South-of-the-border spice. A cover of Spencer Davis Group’s “I’m a Man” captures the spirit of where this band is at.
South – You Are Here (rock)
Released several weeks back, I just caught this today. Fragile songs, extensively arranged, give this group a sound that’s richer than your average brit-pop youngsters.
