Catfish and the Bottlemen
Balcony by Catfish and the Bottlemen should instantly be regarded as a must-listen for alternative rock fans. I liked what they did on Kathleen and the Other Three, but this album completely surpassed whatever expectations I had for the band. Balcony plays like a complete album. Song placement is amazing. And the songs in general have their own style that's borrows a bunch of things from various genres and sub-genres to make a sound that somehow manages to slightly touch on traditional punk rock and 90's pop rock at the same time. I can't say it's the perfect album because towards the middle to the end of the album it loses some of his momentum with a song or two, but overall - this is great. I love "Balcony" and if you listen to it, you will too.
