SHINE-2009-OUR-NATION-575x590Cascine’s flagship artist, literally the band that launched the label, Shine 2009 released their second LP this week. It’s another round of bubbly tracks with beautiful, round production. It’s a fun listen but still has plenty of heart thanks to the lyrical contributions of Sami Souva. The guys were in NYC from Finland to play Cascine’s CMJ showcase last night. It was the first time I’ve seen them perform and I was impressed with their loose, confident stage presence and the addition of a live drummer that gave the songs an added element. Jeff has said repeatedly that he thinks Shine 2009 epitomizes the label and I have to agree. Sami will be joining Jeff on Newtown Radio Sunday from 4-6PM for what should be a good session.
