Bell X1 Takes Its 'Flock' to the States

When vocalist Damien Rice left the Irish rock band Juniper, the rest of its members regrouped as Bell X1. Calling to mind early Radiohead, Bell X1 makes melodic, radio-friendly pop. Flock topped the Irish album charts in 2005, but it's only just been reissued in the U.S., with an ambitious tour to follow. Hear an interview and performance.
