Hard to believe it’s been nearly twenty years since last we heard from Tim Keegan‘s Departure Lounge. They impressed with two fantastic albums, Out of Here and Too Late To Die Young, and then simply disappeared. The group makes their long-awaited return with Transmeridian, a fine return to form. We instantly fell in love with the gorgeous piano ballad “Don’t Be Afraid,” which highlights just how close they were to rivaling then-contemporaries Coldplay, Travis, and Keane. If you missed them the first time around, Transmeridian offers up your chance to make Departure Lounge your favorite new vintage band.
