Will Currie and the Country French – “Awake, You Sleepers!” (2011, File Under: Music)
These songs show a distinct vision for what pop can become, a far-reaching panorama of music aimed at adults who have discerning musical palates and are willing to support a band for daring to aim high. Awake, You Sleepers! is a winning combination of daring and verve.
This is among the best pop albums of 2011, for those of you out there who felt pop was a dead art. A winning combination of daring and verve, Will Currie and the Country French aim for the fences and succeed largely because, when all is said and done, the music is beyond reproach.
