The Tin Star Orphans are fucking awesome as hell and if you don’t buy their album (dropping May 5) you are a fucking sorry excuse for a bastard.  Ahem.  Why am I so vehement?  Because Tin Star Orphan join a celebrated pantheon of bands/singers with bizarre voices that somehow end up sounding extraordinary.  In fact, they crack the top 10!  (Sorry, Blind Melon, you’re gone.)

As for a review, Toronto’s Tin Star Orphans, their album is an alt-country masterpiece, with brilliant lyrics, fantastic harmonies and terrific music.  I can’t say enough about the album.  And I can’t say much of anything, either, because it is simply indescribable.  If this is not the best debut of the year, then we’re in for some amazing new bands this year.
