Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

The Steinbecks

Far From The Madding Crowd

2007-10-22

The best thing about reviewing records is that you come across music that is alive and fresh. That's what I found to be true with The Steinbecks recording Far From the Madding Crowd, their 7th album. The Steinbecks are fronted by the Meadows brothers, Josh and Joel who are loyal to the craft of excellent song writing and recording. Their unique approach to their songs whether it's a heavy rock sound of the electric guitar or the unplugged strumming on an acoustic will lead you to places you've been before but from a different direction. Original is what comes to mind. Indie is the popular term. Pop is definitely what they are. Slip
