Poor, poor Travis. Just a few years ahead of Coldplay and Snow Patrol, they had a moderate amount of success in the States but during their downtime all these other mopey, anthemic Brit bands came along and ate up the charts. The band’s released a new record, The Boy With No Name (did you even know?), that is actually among their best work. That being said, it’s also nothing different than the rest of their stuff.
Here’s Travis performing their latest single, “Selfish Jean”, on The Parkinson Show.
Maximo Park did a little touring in the U.S. this past summer but for such a heavily-hyped band, they fell short if they are hoping to make it big over here with their new CD, Our Earthly Pleasures. That’s too bad because the first track on the CD, “Girls Who Play Guitar”, is one of the best songs released this year. MORE TOURING IN THE U.S., PLEASE!
