Listening to The Grand Prospect is the musical equivalent of drinking whiskey: it makes your ears tingle and you have the vague sensation that maybe this is what gold would be like if you could hear it.
Or maybe I have borderline synesthesia?
Anyway, The Grand Prospect's self-titled debut is nothing less than grand.
The music is a throwback to the best of classic, Southern rock without the weird sense of nostalgia for a decade that none of the band members lived through. The band may be based in Brooklyn, but there is a healthy sense of rootsiness here. It's hard to believe The Grand Prospect is a debut; everything here feels practiced, seamless, and confident -- as if playing music together were the most natural thing in the world.
I'm very excited to see where this band has come from and looking forward to seeing where they're going. Give The Grand Prospect a home in your mp3 player today.
