DOWNLOAD: Mean Creek, "Face of the Earth" [mp3]
Every time we start waxing poetic about MEAN CREEK, we get sidetracked by how good-looking they are. Seriously, it's distracting. It's not our fault we'd rather look at them than write about them. It's their fucking fault. And until someone coins a phrase more apt or more cute than "folk-rock" to describe the broad swath of Americana they take in on their upcoming The Sky (Or The Underground) -- out now digitally, and being released on something called "CD" on September 1 -- we'll just shut up and let you listen to the first single, "Face of the Earth." Probably the only band in town comfortable sharing bills new local heroes Drug Rug as well as old local heroes Buffalo Tom -- both of which they did last month -- they'll be returning to local stages in September.
