Album review: The Frames

image preview

MY OPINION of The Frames has always been skewered towards the negative because of their debut single, the hideously awful 'The Dancer'. The band's knack of repackaging indie and alternative rock for mainstream audiences made them appear edgy to many - but only if you ignored what was going on in indie and alternative rock. Forgive the Indie-snobbery but that did not sit well with me either.

Sush! Don’t tell anyone, The Rye play Bar Ritz this weekend

image preview

The Rye — Kevin Melly (vocals, acoustic guitar), Anna Falkenau (fiddle, backing vocals) Alan Walsh (banjo, electric guitar, backing vocals), Barry Wallace (bass, banjo) and Desmond Harrington (drums) — have been spending much of this summer in the studio recording their debut album. It promises to be one of the buzziest albums to be released in 2010. Each song on the album has a very distinct identity, ranging from the highly charged ‘There’s A Moth at Your Window’, over the jazzy-snappy ‘Lovebirds’, the quirky ‘Wondering the Why’, to the touching ‘Dance With You’.
