A Little Music Review….

October 28, 2010

So I’m about to go to goodreads and post some new reviews, and figured I’d also review a couple of CDs I bought recently.

The first is an album by a Canadian band called Destroyer titled “This Night”.  A fairly obscure Canadian Indie Rock Band, I first became aware of them as their lead singer and guitarist, Dan Bejar, is a member of the supergroup the New Pornographers.  It is a very raw album, but still has some excellent musical talents at work.

The second album also features the work of a TNP member, Kathryn Calder.  “Are You My Mother?” is her first solo album, written and recorded by Calder while she was with her dying mother.  This is a beautifully written and performed album.  It’s really a very upbeat album despite the circumstances it was pieced together under.

Those are the last two CDs I bought.  Both are amazing.
