I saw this band open up for John Mayer in 2006 and I was very impressed by this band.  These guys from Alabama were stellar live and their studio work is just as good.  Preston Lovinggood, in addition to having an awesome last name, is a unique singer, being both melodic and clear.  The sound of the band is very big – it’s very cool to hear how much sound five guys can make together.  It’s a shame these guys only made one album, We Have Cause To Be Uneasy, and broke up right after its release.  Check out the acoustic version of “Tilt” below.
