""The Crying Shame: band that defies comparisons""

If you're tired of the same-old Indie rock, had it up-to-here with music and lyrics that are as interchangeable as pecking pigeons, here's a band to check out: The Crying Shame. Don't be afraid of the cello and violin either. This band is neither pretentious nor pretty, instead blowing out varied, complex moods and an intoxicating, top-to-bottom sound. With six skilled musicians creating fascinating musuc that has elements of country, folk, rock, classical and jazz, The Crying Shame has an epic, difficult-to-categorize vibe. The band's self-titled, debut CD from last year is diverse and vigorous. - The Seattle TIMES
