Philo, they've got Trouble With Girls...

I recently received this gem of a record from the good people at Parasol (and I mean that, really good people). The band is called Philo, the album is The Trouble With Girls. It came out in 1998 and I can't find any sign that Philo is still playing. It's too bad, they play a really interesting mix of power-pop, country laments and straight up rock. They're a three piece but get a good bit of help from friends playing mandolin, Hammond, and steel guitar. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Janet Bean of the fabulous Eleventh Dream Day lends some vocals to one of the songs. Philo offers a really good mix of heartbroken ballads and all out rockers. When they rock they lay it on thick with big tasty riffs of lightly fuzzed electric geetar. The album is only 9 songs long, but lately I've been praising the virtues of less is more. Too many bands I've been listening to (some forced some by choice) decide to go with 14 tracks when their records should've been ten. I don't want filler. I only want the best stuff. The Trouble With Girls feels just right in that regard. I don't think there's a throw away in the bunch. I'm not sure who's going to end up liking this record. It's probably too rock for those who tend to stay on the more Americana side of things (perhaps if you're a big rockabilly fan this might please you) and not nearly hip enough for the indie rock crew. Tragic that I feel the need to place a nice label on these guys or any band for that matter. Bad habit I need to break. But music needs to find its audience. I'm enjoying this in much the same I've been enjoying the new A.C. Cotton record, it just grows and grows on me. Here's Philo:

Last Dart Leaving (Down)

No Roses

As Faithful (As He Can Be)

The record can be purchased from Parasol.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on mens male enhancement reviews.
