Mill's End: Mill's End
Artist: Mill's End
There is certainly a pretty tame alt-country sound to Mill's End, and lead singer/best last name-haver Jeff Bump sounds like Live's Ed Kowalczyk -- if he were getting pelted by rocks.
The band apparently started once jam sessions between the lead singer and drummer became pretty serious. Don't all good things come from jam sessions?
Best Song: "Back Room" has a very twangy, country/lounge singer feel to it. Jeff Bump's vocals are at their best in this effort, not straining to sound like something he is not. The song is painfully simple, yet it showcases just what it is Mill's End is best at -- making music that is fit for a local Phoenix/Tempe bar. That is not an insult, rather it is a compliment to the band's strengths. They aren't going to hit it big on the national scene any time soon, so they might as well hone their craft for the various local Tempe venues.
