NW Music Spotlight – The Turn-Ons

“This long running Seattle band takes their time recording albums, but it’s always worth the wait for their Nicky Sudden, Velvet Undergroundish tracks that can’t be taken lightly. They’re serious about their music, but very humble and consistently appreciative of their audience. Their professionalism is evident in their refusal to be influenced by the many passing trends here in Seattle. Each record shows growth, expansion, and word on the street is that the followup to Parallels will be their greatest album to date… A dynamic, huge step forward, and possibly one of the best Northwest albums of the year.” – John Richards

Here are a couple songs from Parallels, released earlier this year…

  • Strange As Snow – (MP3)
  • Eastern Hollows – (MP3)
