Middle Tennesse is the common thread that holds this blog together. As such, I can’t help but recommend another fantastic pop band from Nashville/Murfreesboro. The Nobility (formerly Jetpack UK) released The Mezzanine on July 31st. The album is 35 minutes worth of quick hitting songs accompanied by organs, horns, strings, hand-claps, and melodic harmonies. They certainly call to mind MiS favorites, the Features, with a bit of Sgt. Pepper’s era Beatles thrown in for good measure. In fact, lead singer Sean Williams’ voice bares a striking resemblance to John Lennon on a few songs including the title track.
