Universal BluesSo Heather turned me onto this band named Redwalls a little while ago, and they are pretty good. Their first album, 2003's "Universal Blues" sounds like it would have been at home coming out in the '60s, with its Beatlesque music fused with rootsy blues and Dylanesque folksiness. (Before you Dylan haters scoff, remember some of John Lennon's best stuff was inspired by Dylan's style). Their latest album, this year's "De Nova," has a more sophisticated sound to it, with the addition of such elements as horns and synth, but they do not lose any of their pop sensibilities-critics like to compare these guys to Oasis, but they're probably much more tolerable than the Gallagher brothers. It's at least worth a listen or two.
