Long Distance Runners – Tracks (Independent)

Remember the exhilaration that you felt one of the first time you heard Exile On Main Street? The feeling that you had stumbled on something truly special? Don’t be surprised if you experience those very same feelings when listening to this debut full-length effort from Newfoundland band Long Distance Runners. Though the record starts out unassumingly enough, before long, you’re drawn in by a combination of catchy Velvet Undergound-Stones rock n roll melodies and clever word play courtesy of vocalist Chris Picco. If these guys don’t become absolutely huge, there is something wrong with the world.
