"The sun is out, the temperatures are getting warmer and I think Spring is creeping in. So my musical appetite requires some sunny sounding power pop and southern influenced rock. Where would I find that? Well, at the moment, I’m finding it on Brave Mountains, the new LP from the French group Appletop. Yes, a French group on a Scottish label playing American-style alt rock with a bit of a country flavor. We are citizens of the world."
