The Differents: It's All Too Beautiful

Chicago rock trio The Differents: always put the vocals upfront on their fourth album It's All Too Beautiful. They lean heavily on the soulful rawk sound that was all the rage in the early Seventies, with brass players, piano and cello weighing in to create a joyous vibe with a sad undertones. Resident songwriter Lou Hallwas sounds like an transatlantic, less-nasal version of Elvis Costello.

Old school craftmanship is flowing through their veins. Heartfelt, blue-collar music that deserves to be played at top volume in bars who go against the grain by hosting live shows to entertain their clientele.
