Ambulance LTD - Stay Where You Are (TVT)
By Steve Rudd
This fame-finding New York outfit could cure all ills, and already they are very well known
over the Atlantic - in the States - where they have appeared on both the Jay Leno
and David Letterman TV shows amongst others.
Slowly but surely the band's profile is rising here, and there's no wonder either,
for the quality of their music is stunning.
Stay Where You Are is the second single from their debut album, being an ethereally
executed wonder that is mid-paced and laced with an epic texture of lush and lavish
vocals and musicianship.
Having previously played dates with Suede, The Thrills and The Killers, Ambulance LTD
are genuinely a band in a league of their own. Oh, and just be careful if you try to
say the band name when they are in earshot.
If you pronounce it wrong they might get a little stroppy, for they stress that you say
the band name Ambulance El Tea Dee'... not limited.
Oh oh, and if you are a fan of The Velvet Underground's legendary back catalogue, listen
out for Ambulance LTD's rendition of The Ocean, for it is alleged to be something
of a startling masterpiece that actually reduced Lou Reed to tears when he heard it.
For your chance of hearing it, why don't you try and check out the band on tour now
as they keep company with The Dears? It's an opportunity too good to miss.
