The Postmen

The Postmen - The Postmen

Their name, for no reason other than similarity, reminds me of the Kevin Costner epic; they are The Postmen.  I've picked this group to write a bit about in honour of the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest, which kicked off with headliner Iron Maiden last night.

The Postmen are a blues group from Switzerland, but their style is probably closer to Blues Rock.  On some of the vocals I was reminded of The Guess Who - the lead singer's voice can be a little raspy.  This is not a bad thing, simply an observation.

Their self-titled album sounds really good, and worth the 20 minute listen.
