Phils Finest Hour

No, I don't have anything to say about anyone called Phil.

This is about a great band I discovered today whilst looking for some new music to listen to, using a neat tool I also recently found. Most of the time, finding new music can be a real drag, taking a lot of hunting to come up with something good. But I have started playing with iRATE, a system which feeds you free music from around the net, and your ratings determine what gets downloaded.

Whilst listening to this, and tossing out a lot of music I found to be garbage, up popped a song by a band called Phils Finest Hour. Having heard their track called Bobs Theory of Ten Storied Houses, I hunted around for more and came across them on mp3.com.au. Their EP has a great combination of rock and piano and I've become hooked now! And they're from Australia also (Perth to be precise but I'll forgive them!).

Now known as The Howling Youth, I eagerly await more releases in the same style as Walk On In.

Rating is 4 **** out of 5! And it's free music!!
