This time we only had to wait nearly 3 years between records. This is the third full-length by Locust Avenue, and it just so happens to be the longest Locust Avenue CD so far. I still haven't figured out why they can't seem to break the 40 minute mark, but it doesn't really matter I suppose at least not when the songs are as good as these. The three-piece presented here brings back the full country twang and pulls out a bit of the garage rock aesthetic too. Don't take my word for it though. Listen to the sample tracks and then get on the bandwagon and pick up a copy for yourself.

Limited to 319.

Band to Watch @ Salad Days Music

Locust Avenue formed in Norman, Oklahoma after the guys got together as a Kinks tribute band, Locust Avenue went their separate ways, reformed, and eventually joined up with guitarist, Todd Walker (Defenestration). Led by the strong songwriting talents of Jeff Richardson (guitar/vocals) Jeff Cooper and Blaine Palmer provide bass and drums to a soundtrack of pain, love, and longing – you know all the things of solid musical fodder.
