Sweet hitchhiker

And I’ve found a new band to like! Lights on the Highway. It shouldn’t be any surprise they are from Iceland. They play ambient guitar pop, sort of like an acoustic, unplugged Pearl Jam. Similar to Iceland’s Tenderfoot (whose first CD was released in America this summer while I wasn’t looking) or Ireland’s Guggenheim Grotto (whose first CD is due 9 September after what feels like a lifetime wait, although they have no US release date.) Lights on the Highway have only been a band for about two years. One of their mp3’s “Said too Much” can be found misspelled at the above linked Airwaves site. Their self-titled album contains 12 songs, all excellent.
