What is going on across the pond these days? So many good bands coming out of Britain these days, many with a somewhat similar sound...mellow, melodic, often soothing, beautiful harmonies, etc. I guess it started with Radiohead, then came Travis, Coldplay, and now very good bands like Turin Brakes (The Optimist LP), Starsailor (Love Is Here), Cosmic Rough Riders (Enjoy The Melodic Sunshine), Stereophonics (Just Enough Education To Perform), Doves (Lost Souls), Elbow (Asleep In The Back), Toploader (Onka'a Big Moka). Are there others I am missing? All of the above albums are very good, and I am enjoying this British Invasion Part II of sorts. Keep it coming! But what is going on over there?
