Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

American Music Club

The Golden Age

2008-02-01

American Music Club : The Golden Age : Merge Records Being altogether unfamiliar with American Music Club, save for their name, I was intrigued as to what they actually sounded like. The name kindled thoughts of Americana, folk and/or blues-rock, and various roots influences. From what I can tell, after listening to this record, that isn’t too far off either. Sounding like a mixture of Being There-era Wilco, label mates The Broken West, and a full-band version of Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen, American Music Club is a force to be reckoned with earnestly and The Golden Age is a testament to this. All tracks, except #8, are suitable for airplay Reviewed by Trevor Edmonds : January 2008
