From the Ground Up (2005)

Details Release Date: May 11, 2005; Lead Performance: Antigone Rising; Genre: Folk

Antigone Rising's major-label debut was developed exclusively for sale at Starbucks, and the marriage makes sense: The New York quintet delivers rich, full-bodied folk rock with a mild intensity and just a hint of acidity. Recorded live in front of a small audience of fans, From the Ground Up (get it?) blends big strums with brawny vocals. On ''Don't Look Back,'' they put both in service of a sweetly yearning chorus, compensating in heart for what they lack in invention.
