Three years ago, Sons of Bill blew us all off our feet with their second album One Town Away. The Virginia-based band (yes, three of them are brothers, and yes, their dad's name is Bill) sounded like R.E.M cranked all the way up to 11, and sang songs about cool stuff like Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle and AM radio, while never afraid to dip into more serious subjects, such as high school shootings and kids their age caught in the dark shadows of Bush's America. Now they're back with Sirens, their most ambitious album which Americana UK's reviewer gave a 9 out of 10, and one that will surely take them to new places, way beyond the conventional borders of country rock. We caught up with lead singer James Wilson again for a chat about album funding, working with your heroes, and going back to the good old days of record making, which - in this case - is not about the 60's.
