The Minor Leagues are a Cincinnati-based band started by Ben Walpole and Patrick Helmes that has expanded into a septet. The band’s last few albums (including 2006’s The Pestilence is Coming) have taken on a grand scale and theme. North College Hill takes its name from the town a few miles north of Cincinnati. The album is full of reminiscence and lamentations about the changes that have occurred in that community. The seven-piece band puts forth a luscious set of lyrical chamber pop to support the album’s nostalgia.
