The Thorns – No Blue Sky

In songs on September 20, 2011 at 8:25 am

I’ve featured a Shawn Mullins song in this space before, and he’s been up to some interesting things since that came out. In 2003 he teamed up with roots-rocker Pete Droge and power-pop maven Matthew Sweet to form The Thorns, a harmony-heavy folk-rock enterprise who put out a self-titled album in 2003.

The attached track is a very Mullins-esque tune, but with the addition of the other singers and big orchestration, it occupies a different sort of space. More epic, if you will. It’s another interesting study in the effects of collaboration.
