Fave Albums: The Redwalls - De Nova
I first saw Illinois band The Redwalls perform on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and knew immediately that I had to get their album, De Nova. Their second release, which came out in 2005, is full of 1960s garage rock on songs such as "Robinson Crusoe," "Love Her," "It's Alright" and "Rock & Roll." There are also the political messages in the lyrics of "Falling Down," "Front Page" and "Glory of War" alongside the heartfelt "Thank You," "Build A Bridge," "Hung Up On The Way I'm Feeling" and "How The Story Goes." It's a fantastic album by a band that is unfortunately no longer together.
Favorite Lyric: Well in times like these you better watch what you say, watch them take your fucking rights away ("Falling Down")
Favorite Song: "Thank You"
