Here’s yet another disc I found at Sonic Boom for $0.99. Total score!
The 5th Annual Toronto Expedition Series, Part 28 (CD)
Y’all know I love Julie Doiron’s work, and in 1999 she did a collaboration record with this band. The Moon was done the same year, and Doiron appears here too.
A shining example of Canuck indie rock, this is brooding, yet still playful, and incredibly beautiful. It sounds so simple, but there’s a complexity underneath it all too. The sound is perfect, the songs ideally realized… Hot damn!
My only complaint is it’s only 8 songs!
