American Beauties is an original independent folk-rock and folk-pop band from Somerville, Massachusetts. The music is reminiscent of the LA, San Francisco, and East Coast folk-rock bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s and mixes both contemporary and roots influences. Their debut record, Too Worn To Mend
, was independently released in October 2012. The album was recorded at Ice Station Zebra in Medford, Massachusetts by Grammy award winning engineer Ducky Carlisle.
