Richmond, Virginia is the home for The Tower and The Fool, "How long" is their debut album and it´s a nice affair of Americana and roots rock for fans of Gin Blossoms, Wilco and Counting Crows. The album is varied of upbeat, midtempo and laid back acoustic songs. I think they´ve got a warm sound and I do enjoy their soft tracks like "How long", "Who does she think she is" and the single "Scoliosis". But the best track is the catchy "Dive bar" that bring thoughts to Goo Goo Dolls, what a wonderful song it is. The album is produced by drummer Mike Poorman (ex.Hot Rod Circuit) and I think he really nailed it, the sound suits these songs just perfect.
