Because We Haven't Heard About My Favorite Coventry-Based Band in a While ...

By James Fallows

I give you, yes, The Fallows, a rising indie-acoustic band from the English Midlands who for understandable reasons have commanded attention in our household since their debut in 2012.

Tragically none of the band members has the actual last name I am looking for. Their real last names turn out to be Darby, Rutherford, Stokes, Pointon, and Corkerry. May these some day be numbered with Lennon-McCartney or at least the revered Clapton-Bruce-Baker! On the other hand, their base is very near the ancestral homeland of the few Fallowses in the world, so we will overlook such technicalities (plus plural-spelling fine points) and proudly claim them. Here is a sample of their music:

With more here. And hey, guys, when your tours take you to the New World, let us know. 

I think henceforth I will introduce myself as "footstompin indie/folk." It's in the blood.
