Every Monday at 3 pm on The Afternoon Show, Kevin Cole spotlights some of each week’s new releases. Lots of good stuff out this week, and here’s a look the self-titled record from a pretty cool six piece folk rock band from London called The Eighteenth Day of May.
The Eighteenth Day of May – The Eighteenth Day of May (Hannibal)
“A promising debut album from this British band featuring New Orleans-raised singer Alison Brice, with a classic British folk-rock sound similar to the Fairport Convention and Pentangle, but tinged with the dark psychedelic drones of the Velvet Underground.” – Don Yates
