Here's what I'm listening to this week: Eisley.
They are these kids, all siblings, from Texas. Tyler, Texas. Yup! If you don't know about Tyler, there's only a few things you need to know. First, it's in East Texas. Second, it's the Rose capital of the world (sorry Pasadena), and third, it's where the first three ZZ Top albums were recorded all those years ago. Back then it was home to Robin-Hood Studio, and the colorful engineer Robin "Hood" Bryan. I met him back in the early '80s, and he had some great stories.
But, as always, I digress.
Now Tyler is also the home of the DuPree kids. Why is the band called "Eisley" and not "DuPree"? No freakin' clue.
So check 'em out. The stuff is dark and dreamy, yet alluringly poppy. Sort of Evanescence meets The Corrs meets Belly. Neat stuff. My song of the week is "Invasion"
