These United States: Honor Amongst Thieves

Here is an entertaining interview with These United States’ Jesse Elliott from Seven Days, an online publication in Vermont. Consequence of Sound reviews of the band’s recently released album.

This is from a review of the album, which is self-titled, at Philadelphia Weekly:

While TUS’ music has always retained Elliott’s penchant for narratives and storytelling, it has evolved from the euphoric honky-tonk and earnest Americana found on the band’s earlier albums to a mature, alt-country version of the Counting Crows, as exemplified on 2010’s What Lasts. With their eponymous album, the band not only retains plenty of honky-tonk and American balladry, but incorporates hints of ’60s garage and classic rock.

Here are The Great Rivers, Water & Wheat, Study the Moon and So High, So Low, So Wide, So Long.

Here is the band’s MySpace and Facebook pages and its site.
