When The Telephone Rings (CD)

Originally released in 2004, When The Telephone Rings truly stands out amid a period of extraordinary creativity among American underground rock bands of the time such as R.E.M., the Replacements and Hüsker Dü. Their raw, catchy, melodic brand of garage-rock drew favorable notices from critics and comparisons to the Velvet Underground, and the Byrds.  When the Telephone Rings has a sound that harkens back to the album that brought such comparisons, their self-titled debut for RCA and their highly influential second album Cuba.
