The Hope of Bill Coleman


I heard Bill Coleman a few days ago and there was no looking back. It's an unassuming name for an unassuming dude who is definitely a little crazy. Immediate comparisons to a more upbeat Damien Rice (especially since they're both Irish), but with a few different musical stylings (some more pop at times, some Jeff Buckley-esque electric-only action). This fantastic album came out in 2006 and I'm pretty sure you still can't find a physical copy to buy in the US. iTunes is probably the best/only bet other than paying in pounds on a British music website. Apparently his live shows are reminiscent of The Flaming Lips and the few live clips on youtube confirm the possibility. Press play. Tell your friends.
