Can Guillemots Ever Live Up to First Single?

Back in late 2005 I heard a single from a new band that absolutely blew my mind. The song was "Trains to Brazil" from Guillemots. In fact, the tune was No. 6 on my list of favorite tracks from the entire last decade. Unfortunately, the Birmingham, UK group has underwhelmed me since then, but I welcome each new release with hope. The Guillemots third album, 'Walk the River,' will be out on April 18 in the UK and May 17 in America, and what I have heard so far shows some of that promise I have been patiently waiting for. Here is a somewhat creepy video for a new song called "The Basket." If you like that one, click here to find out how to get a free download of the title track to 'Walk the River.'
