Vinyl edition of Chasing Someday, the 2011 release from Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. Digital Album download included.
Chasing Someday is a galvanizing release in the heartland rock tradition of Petty and Springsteen (with a dash of country added as well). With the Neighbors providing dynamic, no-frills backup, this Memphis-bred singer/songwriter explores emotional hunger and obsession without sinking into easy sentimentality. Holcomb dives into upbeat tracks like Fire and Dynamite and Steal My History with real ferocity, spurred on by hard-crunching guitars and galloping drums. With Miracles, he delivers a visionary glimpse of everyday happiness that steadily rises in intensity. When wife Ellie Holcomb adds her voice to such tracks as Live Forever and Someday, the effect is similar to Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova's tormented duets in the film Once. Holcomb's songs have a spiritual dimension that only fully emerges at key moments, such as on the prayer-like ballad Weight of the World. Chasing Somebody manages to be tender and heroic at once, dashing off striking lyric phrases while keeping its musical thrust lean, clean and direct. - iTunes
