Nashville's Apollo Up! sounds nothing like the shit-kickers and alt-twangers who usually come from Music City. In fact, on its second album, Chariots of Fire, the trio doesn't even sound like it's from this side of the Atlantic. On songs like "Walking the Plank" and "Cut Up," which are every bit as tough as their titles let on, the band takes the kind of jagged guitar riffs favored by U.K. art punks and combines it with Elvis Costello's This Year's Model-era sneer.
