Turn Off Your Television - Turn Off Your Television (2011)
Comment: a nice set of chiming folk and country songs by a new trio from Malmö, Sweden. The group is already compared to The Avett Brothers, Sparklehorse, Band Of Horses, and Grandaddy. By my side I would add The Wind Whistles, and Jay Bennett as well. More concretely, you can imagine guitar-driven acoustic folk pop which is seamlessly embellished with the whiffs of harmonica and slight psychedelia now and then. However, some tracks are bigger than others (Never Rusting Symphony; The Days We have Today). I am sure TOYT does have big pop potential for the next years.
