AJR
« on: August 04, 2017, 11:21:16 AM »

Several months ago I "discovered " a new group, AJR. I'm old, 69, I rarely discover new groups. The first time I heard them was when they opened for Ingrid Michaelson, in Milwaukee. I was probably the oldest person there.  Smiley Anyway I was blown away by AJR. Anyone here follow them? I just got two of their cds. Their new one " The Click" has a song, " Call My Dad" which has great Beach Boy type harmonies. They even include a bit of Sloop John in the song. Find it and give it a try !

Will do. Thanks for the tip, jeff. And a little less of the "old at 69" if you don't mind. LOL

I see Wilsonart1 has posted about them in the main BB section (probably because of "Call My Dad").

I'm in the middle of the album right now and I haven't heard a bad track yet! Some of them are simply mind-boggling (e.g., "No Grass Today"). "Three-Thirty" must be pretty well unique in being about its own length, lol:

Of course there's John Cage's 4'33" but that's not quite the same. Grin

Good stuff! Like I said in my post ,  when I wrote them I asked, told them!  Never add a cousin to the group.  These guys are just flat out a great listen.
