by The Thorns
Released: May 2003
Like Golden Smog, the Thorns are a roots-pop supergroup comprising Pete Drodge, Matthew Sweet and Shawn Mullins. If you like the Jayhawks, you'll adore the Thorns: chiming acoustic guitars melt into three part harmonies that make you feel as good as scratching a sunburn. CSN&Y would be proud (or very jealous).
