I crushed my 102k training ride this afternoon (thank you, Mother Nature!) so my reward was a couple pints of the new Kiwi IPA from Brimstone Brewing and few rounds of Exploding Kittens with HRH to unwind. Also happening at The Sanctuary tonight is the ‘Writes of Spring‘ show which Kelly and I (okay, me) totally dropped the ball on.
We initially decided on the Lemon Bucket Orchestra to see as our primary concert this summer but they canceled and this show sold out shortly afterwards leaving us more or less, shit out of luck. So, instead, I decided to bring the concert home with us with this ‘Second Sight‘ album by Hey Rosetta!.
This is the 4th studio album by St. John’s, Newfoundland-based band, released by Sonic Records on October 21st, 2014.
It came highly recommended by the young, nice hipster-looking couple who drove all the way from Chicago that we met at the bar before the show who were very excited about the show.
This is the album they picked out for us to come home with.
Recorded over two and a half months in a strip club, it’s a damn fine album. Sad that I’m getting suggestions on great Canadian music from a couple from Chicago but, still, they were bang on in their assessment. Highlights include, ‘What Arrows‘, ‘Kintsukuroi‘, ‘Harriet‘, and ‘Trish’s Song‘. It’s a neat mixture of (if you take Kelly’s word for it anyway) John Mayer and Elton John.
Definitely an enjoyable listen on this quiet Sunday evening over abowl of Kelly’s delcious chicken al fredo.
