The Thrills 

So Much for the City

Published November 20, 2003.The ThrillsSo Much for the City(Virgin)With song titles such as “Big Sur,” “Hollywood Kids” and “Santa Cruz,” one would think The Thrills are from California; they’re from Dublin, Ireland. Although they live far from Cali’s warm, sandy beaches they do a great job of transporting the listener there. Like Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys, the Thrills specialize in bright, sunny anthems with gorgeous vocal harmonies. Add slide guitar and intricate banjo picking and this is an album any fan of alt-country should own. —Johnston Farrow
