No Need to Mow
Everybody has one of those days. You know the kind, the type of day where nothing goes your way. The boss gives you grief, the cops give you a ticket, your significant other leaves you, and then you come home to find out your dog got sick on the rug. All you really want is to unwind and let loose for a while before it's back to the same old grind all over again. Fear not, Albright Green is here to help. They have the same things happen to them on a regular basis and they write about dealing those problems on their new album 'No Need To Mow'. Is 'No Need To Mow' a depressing album? No way. In fact, it's just the opposite. It's an upbeat, fun, put-the-top-down-and-ride type of album, that helps the listener deal with those problems that everybody deals with. 'This album as I see it, stands for that particular individual who doesn't have the best of luck with any/all situations, but still has the courage to smile about it and move on,' says lead singer/guitarist Jeff Williamson. 'No Need To Mow' was produced by multi WAMMIE winner Marco Delmar (emmet swimming, Five State Drive, Basehead). Marco's work on Basehead's 'Play With Toys' album earned a spot in Spin Magazines 'Top 90 of the 90's' at #65. Even the album title says a lot. There really is 'No Need To Mow'. Not yet anyway. The grass will be there when you get to it. 'We see too many people burnt out on the 9 to 5 come home and continue to work on the house or whatever until they have to get in bed, just to wake up and do it again. It's draining. We are basically saying look, take it easy once in a while. Blow off some steam and have a party with Albright Green!', says drummer Jeff Essex. Albright Green's live show reflects this attitude as well. The guys let loose on stage with reckless abandon, smiling from ear to ear, and interacting with the crowd. AG celebrates life through the 'only international language': music. Their infectious live show helps the folks in the crowd deal with the regular pitfalls that life can bring, and the fun attitude seems to be contagious. Album sales of 'No Need To Mow' are steadily rising as the band moves through the East Coast spreading the words and music. Here's what Robert Perez from Amazon.com said about Albright Green's live show and No Need To Mow: 'Albright Green has grabbed my attention. For a long time I thought there wasn't a band in the Northern Virginia area that had any inspired song lyrics with great music. Then AG appeared and Whoa! What a kickin' live show too. Just what rock-n-roll needed. 'No Need To Mow' keeps on rockin. Grab a cold brew and check out 'Shade Tree', after hearing this once, you'll be humming the lyrics the rest of the day. 'Gone' is another potential hit, 'Lookin' Back' and 'She' will have you dancing down the hallway. Not enough could be said about this album. Buy it Now!' 'Nuff said. See you at the shows!
