This Weeks Music: Brought to you by DJ Amber Waves at Open til’ Midnight:
Happy Friday, Green Majority!
It’s been a fantastic week of new music discoveries at Open ‘Til Midnight, discoveries I’ll be sharing with you over the coming weeks, including a spotlight or two of Indie Week artists. This week, however, I’m going with my favourite guy who just so happens to be with a small label now: Matthew Good.
Arrows of Desire, his tenth full-length album of original material, dropped this past Tuesday and just as his 2004 release White Light Rock And Roll Review was a timely exploration of the sociopolitical climate of the Bush era, this album encapsulates the sense of hitting a crossroads on multiple levels — environmental, political, and cultural, to name a few. The back-to-basics garage rock vibe calls back to the rebellious 70s in spirit.
Check out “Guns Of Carolina” and “We’re Long Gone”, two of my favourites on the album, and if you still need more reasons to pick it up and support a Canadian treasure, there’s always my full review on the blog.
You can also pick a tour date across Canada to enjoy at http://www.matthewgood.org.
Until next week, stay cozy.
