First Appeared at The Music Box, February 2003, Volume 10, #2
Written by T.J. Simon
Peter Bruntnellís music should be classified as Americana ó notwithstanding that heís from England. On his second release Ends of the Earth, he recalls the sounds of Uncle Tupelo and Whiskeytown before both bands experienced "Big Bangs" that scattered their founders into the formation of the alt-country universe. Like his nearly perfect debut Normal for Bridgewater, Bruntnellís knack for clever wordplay over trusty chords shines brightly on the new tracks Here Come the Swells and Tabloid Reporter. Unlike many of his country counterparts, Bruntnellís work holds up particularly well over multiple listens ó a good thing since youíll be compelled to play this one again and again. Ĺ
Ends of the Earth is available from Barnes & Noble.
