CD Review: Auburn Continues To Grow With "Mixed Feelings" Album

From the U.K. comes the latest release from the acoustic, Americana, roots band Auburn entitled "Mixed Feelings." They are looking to build upon the success of their last album "Nashville" (Review: jpsmusicblog.blogspot.com) which debuted at #1 on the U.K. Americana music chart.

Their new twelve song release begins with the slow jaunt of the title-song, "Mixed Feelings" as lead singer Liz Lenten works her jazzy vocals into the song. The country-blues of "New Years Day" and the gentle touch of "Friends" is an awakening to the amazing songwriting within the band. They look to pick up the pace with "Hell Hath No Fury" as Liz' sweet vocals does not match the intensity of the song's quick, country tempo. It all comes together for the sweet country twang of "Out There" and "Wood For The Trees," before closing with the folk gem "Feel The Sun." Auburn are following the release of the their new album with some live shows beginning September 11th.
