Into the vaults we go....
Raleigh, North Carolina's THE CONNELLS were kind of R.E.M. redux back in the late '80s/early '90s -- jangle-pop/power-pop with a Southern sensibility (by way of the UK).
It's been eight years since their last release, the line-up has changed (more than once) (more than twice), and pretty much all of the band members have secured employment outside of the music industry, but they refuse to officially call it quits. Plucky perseverance or out-of-touch obliviousness?
Well, who the hell cares? What matters is that they managed to produce some pretty fine tunes back in the day. If their day should come again, chalk it up to "bonus," baby.
