Audrye Sessions Turn Me On

I'm not sure what it is about female bass players that I find so alluring, but, it is definitely a bug I have and can't seem to shake.  It's happened before with Stellastarr* and Silversun Pickups... and it's happened again with Audrye Sessions.

Their music runs along the lines of the Aussie band Youth Group, whom it seems the opening guitar was cribbed, and a little bit of a harder edged Toad The Wet Sprocket.  Good music that is only "alternative" because it's indie and not because of the way it sounds.  And, bass player Alicia Marie Campbell is a looker, yeow!  

Next week the band will come through The D with Manchester Orchestra at The Loft.  Should be a good show.

I have not heard of them... but, I will have to check them out now. I had only heard of Audrye through the magic of Subterranean.
