American Suitcase

With a name like American Suitcase you'll be surprised to learn that this band is from Oslo, Norway. Most of the reviews I read about them were from 2003 and earlier. In them, they are repeatedly compared to The Byrds, Teenage Fanclub and Matthew Sweet. (I kind of hear The Posies in there also.)

The American Suitcase website looks outdated so I was almost certain they were no more... but it looks like they just played a benefit this past December. There are a couple more songs there to listen to, and some on their MySpace page too. This is really nice power pop. I checked around briefly and it doesn't seem like they have a distributor here in the states. Hrmmm....

MP3: Lloyd Christmas
