Buttless Chaps – Where Night Holds Light
I found this one at Sonic Boom for $3. I could never part with a disc of theirs so cheaply! It oughta be full price!
The 5th Annual Toronto Expedition Series, Part 37 (CD)
Here’s an excellent record! It’s a beautiful amalgam of pop, country, new wave, and rock. With every track, you never quite know what’s going to happen next, but each one is fascinating and makes sense once it gets going. The band is stellar, buoying the rich and warm vocals easily, and there are trumpets! I like trumpets.
What an absolute pleasure to play this record top to bottom. If you find their work, grab it up!
PS: Buttless Chaps broke up in 2009 to start other bands. Dave Gowans and Lasse Lutick also run Red Cat Records in Vancouver.
