Swinging Steaks

With a name like Swinging Steaks, they sound like a crappy, bloated, Texas cover band that would play GOP fundraisers. But these guys are actually from Boston, play their own alt-country tunes and even performed for Al Gore prior to one of his debates. Although a few of those guys in the back do seem a bit bloated.

Their sound isn't anything unique from the rest of the alt-country field. They remind me a lot of The Health & Happiness Show in fact. But their tune "Light of the Moon" entertained me the other night as I waited for hours in the airport. They got the "repeat" treatment for a while.
