Tupelo Honey is one of those band names I not only don’t understand, I can’t even figure out how to pronounce. Thankfully the album name I know how to sound out. But the name of the band really gave me no clue into the inner-workings of what the music would be, so this got me very excited.
iTunes is telling me Tupelo Honey is a rock band. And rock they do. Lots of “straight ahead rock”… I don’t know where that line comes from. Anyways, Tupelo Honey sounds like a lot of bands I’ve heard, in that rock songs, after a while, all sort of meld together. But the vocals in this band somehow stand out beyond much others. I don’t know how to describe it. But the vocals. Definitely the vocals, to me, are what make Tupelo Honey stand out.
I like the energy. Not one single song on here I could find boring, or even potentially boring. Awesome songs, fast, slow, slow-ish rather, but not so heavy-handed? Am I still even talking in music terms here??? Anyways. What I mean is, I like all the songs on the album because they intrueige me.
Considering I’ve found a new job that’s a very short drive from my house, I am now open to shorter length CD’s being in my car. And I’m certain that Tupelo Honeyy will be making my rotation as I hit up the suburb side-streets to my 8 to 5 office job! Nothing better to wake me up in the morning, or keep me awake in the evenings.
