Penny Blacks new album “Harbour”

I’ve got some feelers out to a couple different bands for new music to share with you on Songs:Illinois. But if it was a race to get back to me quickest than the Penny Blacks have won the medal. Penny Blacks are a band from Saint John, New Brunswick who straddle a couple different genres. On a song with cello and acoustic guitar (like “Only Good Enough”) you’ll hear a bit of americana, but on others (“Bitter Bruisers Society”) you might hear hints of Joe Jackson (hey, I liked Joe Jackson!) in the power pop arrangements and lush strings (“She’s Losing Herself”).

The new album is called Harbour and is available here through Bandcamp.

Only Good Enough
