Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls
Frank Turner has the brash charisma of the best British pub singers, but with his roots in hardcore punk outfit Million Dead, he hasn't lost that rabid spirit of protest. England Keep My Bones, his latest, is the perfect complement to the perfect pint, a salve for anyone who didn't grow up to become an astronaut or a Nobel laureate. It's a temporary antidote to the longest workday, a no-show dinner date, a crumbling economy, or really anything that reeks of BS. "There is no god, so clap your hands together," the Nietzsche-inspired chorus to "Glory Hallelujah," is a surefire sing-along.
