Bandits On The Run, “The Criminal Record”
Whether it’s their three-part harmony, crafty lyrics, soulful-folksiness or overall musicianship there something undeniably charming about Bandits on the Run and “The Criminal Record” showcases that.
Cellist Sydney brings a sophistication to the band’s overall sound with each stroke of her bow while Adrian’s guitar-styling and All-American sound brings a folksy flare to the trio as Regina rounds out the sound with her rhythm and blues infused vocals.
From start to finish the album grabs a hold of your heart and for eight tracks holds it captive returning it slightly modified; full of love and optimism, yes the album is that good. For those reasons and for many more I fail to articulate Bandits on The Run’s “The Criminal Record” is our pick for Album of The Year.
