Itís unusual for me to post a music review on FamilyResource.com, but I have to make an exception for this band. Bill Mallonee and the Vigilantes of Love are one of the most talented, yet unheard of bands out there. Summershine is the thirteenth album in a long history of thought provoking and melodic recordings.
With southern roots reaching out of Athens, Georgia (home to REM), Bill Mallonee and the Vigilantes of Love have been creating alt/country/pop music with poetic lyrics that often seem to pierce the soul. Bill Mallonee possesses a unique degree of brutal honesty about life that everyone can relate to. Sometimes somber, sometimes jovial, listening to their music makes you feel connected to someone who actually understands the human condition.
