And now we enter the world of Canadian musician/novelist Geoff Berner, an accordion-playing, political, brilliant punk folk artist.
First up is this amazing six-song EP from 2000. The title track (which I just now discovered has been covered by the Be Good Tanyas) is achingly real and beautiful. Ramble through these songs (even the hidden track!) and you’ll quickly realize you’re listening to well-crafted, intelligent and often humourous poetic true-to-life missives from a man who definitely deserves your attention.
