Fruit Bats – When You Love Somebody

Fruit Bats are a great folk rock band from Chicago, Illinois. Known as a key member of the folk-rock boom in the early 2000s, the members of this group have changed over the years but one has remained the same: frontman and songwriter Eric D. Johnson. The group has released four studio albums between 2001 and 2009, the most notable of which is The Ruminent Band, 2009. Johnson joined the Shins in 2009 but has continued to work with the Fruit Bats. I saw them last fall at the Media Club and had a good ol’ time in that sweaty little venue. Be sure to catch them live if you get the chance, folks!
