Artist / Band: SOLTERO
Album: Hell Train
File Under: Mean love songs
Label: three ring records
Info: Soltero writes mean love songs about the freeze and thaw, the hem and haw of a young heart.The recordings alternately feature the melancholy of Leonard Cohen and the full-band bravado of Neil Young. Some comparisons that are frequently made include Pavement, Silver Jews, and Yo La Tengo. The Boston Globe has even alleged that if Johnny Cash and Lee Hazelwood were to play together they would sound something like Soltero.Soltero has shared bills with The Mountain Goats, Of Montreal, Brother Danielson, Mirah, Mark Robinson, Calvin Johnson, Idaho, Songs:Ohia, and The Microphones, among others.Soltero is permanently Tim Howard and frequently others as well.
