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.
