One of my blog-related resolutions for the new year was to feature a few more local bands. Local meaning Ohio - it isn't THAT big of a state, so I consider all of Ohio local. Here is the first in what I hope will become at least a semi-regular series I am calling 'Sounds Like Ohio.'
Southeast Engine are one of my favorite central Ohio bands. They call Athens,OH home - which is about an hour or so south of Columbus. They have been around, in one form or another since 1999 and have released a handful of albums featuring their take on indie rock with some alt-country leanings.
Their latest record JUST came out on Feb 18th and is called 'From The Forest To The Sea.' Here is one of my favorite tracks off of the record:
