Band of Annuals is a hardworking 6-piece band from Salt Lake City, Utah. They formed almost three years ago, and quickly gained a reputation as one of the Intermountain West's best country folk outfits. Shortly after forming, Band of Annuals self released the album REPONDEZ, and then toured the pacific coast, and played shows in places as far east as Kansas. Their follow up disk, Live Warehouse EP, was called the best alt-country music to ever come out of Salt Lake City by local music publication SLUG Magazine. Their latest album, Let Me Live, was released in May of 2007. Let Me Live builds on many of the same themes as their earlier work, and even showcases studio versions of several tracks from last year's live record. The twelve songs melt seamlessly together, and demonstrate why many consider Band of Annuals major players in Utah's burgeoning country noir music scene. Band of Annuals has shared the stage with Magnolia Electric Co., Neko Case, Damian Jurado and many others. Their sound has been compared to bands like these, and this is at least somewhat accurate. They must be heard to be believed. Their music is flawlessly beautiful and substantially better than most of what has thus far emerged from outlaw, religious Utahâ€s musical repertoire. Bill Frost of Salt Lake's City Weekly described their music as a devastating combo of heartbreaking alt-country earnestness and perfect pop-hook craftsmanship. Let Me Live was record earlier this year with the help of Scott Wiley, who assisted on the Elliot Smith album Basement on a Hill. He has also worked with Ryan Adams, Tracy Chapman and others. 1 Lessons Learned 2 Blood On My Shirt 3 David's Country 4 Something True 5 Mercy 6 The Ballad of Casey Jones 7 Ain't Lookin' Back 8 Thought I'd Have Learned 9 Lower 10 She's Not Angry 11 Don't Let Me Die 12 Soon
