The Felice Brothers - Yonder Is The Clock -2009-
(Folk, Rock, Soul)

From: New York

"The Felice Brothers come to us from the Catskill Mountains where a homegrown sound has been working its way through the bloodlines for generations. Titled with a phrase drawn from the pages of Mark Twain, "Yonder Is The Clock" is teeming with tales of love, death, betrayal, baseball, train stations, phantoms, pandemics, jail cells, rolling rivers, and frozen winter nights. This is music that hasn't lost sight of the history of the land from which it came, and that quality alone makes The Felice Brothers the next great American band."
Fans of Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Wilco will dig these guys. They may be steeped in tradition, but they are definitely a unique bunch. The music is dark, sad, romantic and there's an authenticity at work here that I just don't often hear in the rest of the folk/roots/Americana music genre.
