One of the albums that almost made it into the Top Ten, was the debut disc from The Rantouls (including Gavin May of the excellent Fevers). Called In the Village of Rantoul, it’s out on Chocolate Covered Records just like most of their singles. I’ve finally heard it in its entirety, and I might have rated it even higher if I had done so earlier. Listen to “She’s a Rebel” below, and expect to hear more on the next podcast!
If you enjoy this, you should also check out Beat Beat‘s self-titled lp from last year. Beat Beat was started by the drummer from Austrian garage group Rodriquez and the album is available from their countrymen at Bachelor, who also released it.
