    HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM FROM BOSTON 8 PIECE THE YOUNG REPUBLIC. THESE 8 COLLEGE KIDS RETURN WITH A COLLECTION OF THEIR WORK SO FAR, PREVIOUSLY ONLY AVAILABLE ON CDR AT LIVE US SHOWS. FUSING THE CLASSICAL (MOZART, BEETHOVEN) WITH THE CLASSIC (WILSON, LENNON) THE BAND PRODUCE THEIR OWN PARTICULAR BRAND OF MELANCHOLIC COUNTRY-TINGED POP. TAKING THE CLASSIC INDIE SOUND OF LLOYD COLE, CAMERA OBSCURA AND EARLY BELLE AND SEBASTIAN, THE YOUNG REPUBLIC ADD THEIR OWN WISTFUL, STRING-LADEN AMERICANA, WITH TOUCHES OF FOLK, BLUEGRASS AND COUNTRY ALONG THE WAY. RECORDED IN CLASSROOMS, BEDROOMS AND OLD CHURCHES WITH ASSEMBLED FRIENDS (INCLUDING AT ONE POINT A 20 PIECE CHOIR!) '12 TALES FROM WINTER CITY' CHARTS THE BEGINNING STAGES OF THIS HUGELY PROMISING BAND.
