Interested in some traditional working class rock? Well, Colorado based Arliss Nancy´s new album "Wild American Runners" takes the listener through a soundscape of punkish roots rock with Americana flavor that can be described as Bruce Springsteen meets early Goo Goo Dolls. Arliss Nancy formed in 2007 and has released 3 full length albums and 2 Ep´s but the new album is the first one I get to hear with this 5 piece band. If you´re into bands like Deaf Havana and Gaslight Anthem, you should take a moment to listen to "Wild American Runners". It´s solid all the way with no fillers in sight, I especially dig tracks like "Nathaniel" and "Hold it together". Grab a beer, sit back and relax to this really nice rock band.
