Such is the case with Ian Brown. Many of you likely know him as the frontman for the Stone Roses ah, the Stone Roses, where dance music seamlessly meshed with rock. For without the Roses we wouldnt have had Oasis, "Screamadelica"-era Primal Scream and countless other BritPop acts even Coldplay. But, in America, the Stone Roses? It seems like people could care less.
Well now they should. Because Ian Brown is releasing his fourth yes fourth solo record. And its brilliant. Its been out in the UK since last fall and its finally getting a proper release in the States on Feb. 22.
