Back in November, 2010, I had the pleasure to share the talents of Train Company's music rocking its way out of Chicago. Recently, they honored me with a sneak-peak of their new album, "The Remains of an Effort" set to release on August 14th. In their original article, I claimed that they prove that the Blues are still alive, thriving and running wild. Well, if their music at that time was a thesis to this argument, the new album is their dissertation.
Outdoing themselves to the point that one-upping is long and gone, "The Remains of an Effort" beautifully incorporates new sounds by adding horns, strings and female back-up vocalists. When listening to the album, it is easy for me to understand why it took two years to complete. Every single track mixes the style I have grown to know and love from Train Company with the wisdom and increased talent they have gained in the four years they have been recording music.
Every member of TC are now at PHD status in regards to the Blues and Rock n' Roll. Their advanced education was well worth the effort.
Educate yourselves and find out if Train Company is playing near you.
