I've wanted to post about far flung brit-rockers British Sea Power for a while, and today is the day. I know I keep harping on the whole "underwater rock" thing, so I'll spare you the metaphor. Besides, these guys are sea power. They float on the surface, maybe even with a motor. There is a lot of space in their tunes, so I guess a wide-open body of water is a good place to start when describing them. The name really says it all; they love the south of England and the sea, and they certainly sound like it. Unfortunately for us in NYC, they just wrapped up their North American tour in Hoboken. But for the rest of you: they'll be back in the UK all summer with their dirty joke telling and obsession with their band name (their shows typically consist of, beyond the music, offensive witticisms and giant naval flags). These salty brits still have a sound to be reckoned with; even if their name is hilariously appropriate. "We're all waving flags..." Yeah, you are. To honor their British-ness, I left the tour dates UK style. Do You Like Rock Music? is out in stores now.
