YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THAT


Steel Train’s come a long way.  Starting out as a somewhat misplaced blend of americana-indie and 70’s-era jam music on Drive Thru Records, Jack Antonoff and co. have evolved into a stronger outfit more in tune with its indie-pop sensibilities.  The band released the breakout Trampoline over two years ago and since then I’ve been hardpressed not to see their name pop up everywhere I look.  Currently on the road opening for Tegan and Sara, Steel Train have released a new song, “Turnpike Ghost,” off of their untitled album which should be coming out sometime in June.  It’s a bit more raw and frantic than what you’ll find on Trampoline, but catchy and fun nonetheless.  And is it just me, or does Antonoff sound a hell of a lot like Win Butler here?
