iPod Shuffle2 - Autumn Shade
The Vines - Autumn Shade - Play this track here.
While minding my own business munching through my lunchtime Peking duck wrap, I was reminded of the turning of the season. A half brown, half green leaf landed on the bench next to me and a cool breeze made me zip up my jacket. Autumn (or you may call it fall) has arrived.
This track Autumn Shade comes from the Australian alternative rock band The Vines 2002 album 'Highly Evolved'. It was produced by Rob Schnapf, Highly Evolved was an immensely popular debut, part of a trend towards garage rock revival bands known as much for the relentless hype from the UK music press as for their music; The Vines were frequently compared to Nirvana. The debut single, "Highly Evolved", was chosen as Single of the Week by influential British music magazine New Musical Express. They also voted it the 2nd best album of the year in 2002.
Originally named Rishikesh and formed 1994 in Sydney, they play a musical hybrid of 1960s garage rock and 1990s alternative music.
Since 2006 their line-up has consisted of vocalist and lead guitarist Craig Nicholls, rhythm guitarist Ryan Griffiths, bass guitarist Brad Heald, and drummer Hamish Rosser.
Upon the release of their debut album, The Vines were hailed as “the second coming of Nirvana" by the British press; their grungy sound was considered reminiscent of the Seattle scene circa ’91, and Nicholls' erratic on-stage behavior and raw vocals drew comparisons between him and Kurt Cobain. Highly Evolved became a huge success and their accompanying live shows in the early years were praised as "electrifying" and "sensational".
