News :: New Release: “Flawed Logic” by American Babies

April 19th, 2011 by Engine Room Recordings | Subscribe To The News Feed [ News]

Today is the day, Flawed Logic is now available for sale on iTunes and everywhere digital music is sold.  Or if you’re still on a high from Record Store Day and need a physical fix, then pick up the CD through our online store.

The press has been very kind so far; here’s what a few people are saying:  My Old Kentucky Blog said  “My first instinct, when I heard the captivating single Dance All Night off American Babies sophomore effort, Flawed Logic, as literally a visceral, full-body sigh of  “aww, yeah…” This Buddy Holly-drenched two-stepper almost guarantees your legs will involuntarily begin line dancing under your desk.”  And Glide Magazine gave it 4 out of 5 stars, and said “Hamilton’s penchant for producing a majestic elegance inside all his musical voices is second to none and on his new American Babies release, Flawed Logic, he further cements his reputation as major talent.”  Then AOL Spinner is streaming Flawed Logic all this week and had this to say “Tom Hamilton invokes Ryan Adams and other alt-country troubadours with his band of babies.”

Please give it a listen for yourself, and then catch the band live all year when they will be touring throughout the US, including stops in Philly, Boston, NYC, Burlington and North Carolina.  More shows are being added daily, but to see where they will be going so far look at the tour calendar on this page or go to
