Brakesbrakesbrakes: The Beatific Visions
Buy! - (Rough Trade)
Known simply as Brakes in their native England, this band led by British Sea Power keyboardist Eamon Hamilton offers up their 2nd wildly diverse album, with songs ranging from politically charged punk stompers to some gorgeous, country-tinged ballads. While their debut Give Blood was a fun, tossed-off side-project that still featured some great songs, the Beatific Visions was produced in Nashville and sounds more like a serious band coming into their own. Released last fall overseas, it’s just now being released in the US. 4/16/2007 - Don Yates
