Revelers were the toast of their hometown of Cleveland during their 1990s run, but if not, I'd be happy to raise a toast to them any day, because their update on Merseybeat pop 'n roll was nothing short of impeccable. Their career spanned 1989-99 and produced four albums and roughly half a dozen singles, "This Little Light of Mine" included, and is as suitable an intro as any I might add. Featured here are two flawless, retrofitted originals, as well as their spin on a Beatles classic. Crucial stuff in the same league as early Apples and Stereo and Failure-era Posies. The a-side can also be found on The Revelers On Top cd. I'm not sure how easy it is to track down their back catalog these days, save for their last two albums which were released via SpinArt Records and available cheap on Amazon, but this online discography is helpful. Check out the bio linked on their Myspace page linked above for the full dirt on this talented bunch.
