The Brook Lee Catastrophe - American Hotel

The Brook Lee Catastrophe does it again with its third and arguably its best CD.
Upbeat rhythms, catchy riffs, and more Dylan-like lyrics from Brook. His voice is at times haunting, at times soothing, at times mesmerizing. The band takes chances on various genres of music-acoustic, folk, blues, rock, country, and celtic surrounded in an atmosphere only an indie band can provide.American Hotel was released as a limited edition (100 in print) with an insert that folds into a 3-D cut-out.
Not sure how many are left but the CD can be purchased at Fingerprints in Belmont Shore, Long Beach
or at any BLC live shows-which is worth checking out.
My iTunes Genius matched the following artists with the BLC: Third Eye Blind, Semisonic, Smashing Pumpkins, Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox Twenty, Sister Hazel, Deep Blue Something, Duncan Sheik, Eve 6, Fastball, Barenaked Ladies, Incubus, Blink-182, The Police, Uncle Kracker, Wilco.

Purchase the CD on iTunes and tell me what you think. I think it's well worth the $9.99. After listening to the BLC, you'll sacrifice a few Venti Lattes to get the previous two CD's - "Mistakes Pt 1" and "The Weight Of Waiting".
